Systems Engineering for Standard ITS Applications

Project description

The Systems Engineering for Standard ITS Applications includes Concept of Operations (ConOps), Functional Requirements (FRs), and ITS Checklists for standard ITS applications. The standard ITS applications are identified as: Railroad-Highway Grade Crossing Warning, Road Weather Information Systems, Standard Traffic Signal, and Weigh-in-Motion. These documents will be used by MnDOT as a resource for planning, designing, and implementing standard ITS deployments statewide. Each application has a standardized ConOps and FRs documents. Additionally, an ITS checklist for each standard application is provided as a resource for ease of completing all required project documentation. The ConOps and FRs document for each application is intended to be fairly static with occasional updates, while project specific information will be provided on the associated checklist. The overall goal is to provide MnDOT with the assurance of project compliance required upon federal authorization.

Project benefits

  • Expedites the review and approval process for compliance of federal requirements
  • Provides the philosophy and approach to standard ITS applications
  • Assists with policy decisions and project design
  • Enhances the efficiency of ITS project deployment
