Intelligent Freeway Transportation Systems: Functional Design was written to provide engineers engaged in the functional design of freeway intelligent transportation systems with the background and tools to develop effective systems that are properly scaled to traffic conditions, and that use project resources efficiently. Chapter 1 describes the migration of ITS from its initial technology constraints to its current ability to support a greater variety of functions that can be integrated into a system that better satisfies stakeholders’ needs
