A few of ITS platforms are planned and in-progress in Queensland. These comprise:
Intelligent Access System will empower the Queensland Department of major Roads and Queensland transportation to grow for distant observation of heavy transport modes by use of satellite. This will include an electronic consistence checking rule. This system will shape a platform for a nationwide methodology.
Maroochydore Parking Guidance System which will help drivers to discover the place to park near the Sunshine Plaza.
Mt Molloy Load Limit Information signal which will give opportune and exact data to drivers amid period of wet climate.
Palmerston Highway Heavy Vehicle Safety Advisory System which is intended to instruct drivers regarding their conduct and to force them to drive all the more securely.
Global Satellite Positioning System (GPS)
Diverse kinds of supportive ITS applications need distinctive levels of precision from on-board advanced maps and positioning technologies (Caimey, 2008). It is plausible that present GPS only couldn’t convey the level of precision needed for extra rigid supportive systems. Yet, if utilized along with different strategies, adequate exactness could be accomplished.
Placed in a dark metal box on a side of the crossing point, the signal controller is the “mind” of the framework. It is a PC that converts the data got from the detector loops and strider push buttons and changes the signal lamps as per its programming (Alberta Transportation, 2009). As per the predominant needs, the controller decides the span of the green signal for every traffic activity and controls the move from one mix of green and red signals (known as stage) to the following. It can work in a detached way or be modified to facilitate with a progression of contiguous traffic signals.
