CAD - CARS Integration

 

Project Description


The Condition Acquisition and Reporting System (CARS) is used as a reporting tool for transportation-related event and condition reports.  The data entered into CARS is disseminated automatically through Mn/DOT’s 511 phone and web systems.  The Minnesota State Patrol Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system is used to record incidents and dispatch emergency personnel.  The CAD to CARS project will automatically link the CAD system to the CARS system, therefore increasing the number of crashes and vehicle incidents disseminated through the 511 phone and web systems, without the need for duplicate entry.
