This project will update the Statewide Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Architecture for the State of Arizona. The Statewide Architecture provides a common framework for planning, defining, and integrating intelligent transportation systems over the next 10 years. Once complete, this Architecture will reflect the contributions of a broad cross section of the ITS community. The Arizona Statewide ITS Architecture defines the physical elements in the field, explains the functions that are required of the elements, and documents the information flow that connects the functions and the systems together to create a complete integrated system.
The objective of this project is to ensure that all ITS investments in the State will have established common communication protocols, avoid duplication of investment in infrastructure, provide the ability to share data sources between agencies, and update existing legacy ITS Architecture, bringing the State into compliance with the nationally established ITS standards and architecture.
