Airside Transportation Systems ITS

  1. 1. Rev 1.1 Proposed Airside Intelligent Transportation System Intelligent Devices, Inc. 4411 Suwanee Dam Road, Suite 510 Suwanee, GA 30024, USA (770) 831-3370 (Office) (770) 831-3533 (Fax)
  2. 2. Rev 1.1 PROPOSED AIRSIDE INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM 1. Introduction Airside control relies heavily on the transportation of goods from one area to another. This makes transportation a critical activity to airsides operations. A vital step in improving the traffic is by systematically and continuously monitoring the traffic conditions and incidents. If there are delays on the transportation from airside to the terminals it will affect the final travel times of the passengers. Intelligent Devices provides an integrated solution to managing and monitoring transportation in airside operations. Well proven technologies exist in the traffic systems management arena, including the application of Intelligent Transportation Systems to improve traffic and safety. This proposal provides for the application of these technologies to the open cast mining arena. 2. Benefits The proposed system will provide the following benefits for the managing of transportation in airside activities. a. Improved Safety The system will improve the safety of mining transport, workers and pedestrians by providing information to the vehicles about the weather conditions and varying the speed limit based on the road parameters. b. Reduced Speed The traffic calming displays have been well demonstrated to reduce the speed of vehicles, where they are deployed. Just reducing the speed of vehicles at airside, where required will be a significant factor in improving safety. c. Improved Observation The pictures from the cameras, mounted on the portable signs, will aid the operator in managing the traffic at airside, assessing the traffic and weather conditions, and determining the appropriate messages and speed limits. d. Improved Incident Response In the unfortunate event of an incident occurring, the system can be used to manage the incident. This can include observation and verification, as well as changing the messages on the signs to inform the operators about the incident, and the prospective delay. Also, the speed limit can be revised as appropriate. e. Improved information of delivery times and payload quantities The IDI interface Kit with GPS will give us information on the expected time of arrivals, destination that the vehicle must go to, no. of passengers on board and various other user configurable quantities. f. Enforcement An Intelligent Transportation System can aid enforcement of traffic regulations and speed limits via a variety of electronic techniques.
  3. 3. Rev 1.1 3. Proposed System Description Overview The system proposed is a small scale Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) based on best practices from around the world. This proposed system consists of the following elements (see also typical photographs at the end of this proposal): a. Portable Changeable Message Signs. These signs inform the airside operators about the various activities; the current conditions and any incidents along the route. Variable Message Sign, with Camera b. Traffic Calming Signs. These small signs monitor the speed of the approaching vehicles. When an over-speed approaching vehicle is detected, the sign flashes a “SLOW DOWN” message. This is well proven to decrease the average speed of vehicles, and have a calming effect on the traffic.
  4. 4. Rev 1.1 Traffic Calming Displays c. Variable Speed Limit Signs: These small signs are used to lower the posted speed limit during construction activities, or bad weather, or when the mine management believes that safety will be impacted. Variable Speed Limit Sign d. Monitoring and Control Software: The control system allows the system to be monitored for correct operation; for messages to be placed on the signs; for incidents to be managed, and the mine to be observed through the cameras which are mounted on the portable signs.
  5. 5. Rev 1.1 Typical Control System Screen Also available is a low cost IDI Airside interface kit. The IDI interface kit provides and integrated solution for managing the operations of machinery. • The user interface allows the user of the machinery to enter information about driving conditions, payload content and airside conditions via a simple touch screen interface. • A GPS receiver keeps track of the vehicles position, speed and direction. • The Interface Kit provides a NTCIP interface for any NTCIP Central System to retrieve the data on the vehicle, allowing for monitoring of all plow activities. • Effective communication to the vehicles driver can be maintained by an integrated on-board Web interface, allowing access to any information required by the operator. • The IDI Interface kit supports IDI’s WEBDirect technology, allowing direct access to the vehicle for position and status over the WEB from any browser or WEB enabled PDA.
