Regional ITS ArchitectureBack
The Omaha-Council Bluffs Regional ITS Architecture is a roadmap for transportation systems integration. The architecture was developed through a cooperative effort by the region’s transportation agencies, covering all modes and all roads in the region. It represents a shared vision of how each agency’s systems will work together in the future, sharing information and resources to provide a safer, more efficient, and more effective transportation system for travelers in the region.
The architecture provides an overarching framework that spans all of the region’s transportation organizations and individual transportation projects. Using the architecture, each transportation project can be viewed as an element of the overall transportation system, providing visibility into the relationship between individual transportation projects and ways to cost-effectively build an integrated transportation system over time. This chapter establishes the scope of the architecture in terms of its geographic breadth, the scope of services that are covered, and the time horizon that is addressed.
