Florida Intelligent Transportation Systems Evaluation Tool (FITSEVAL)

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) planning requires the use of tools to assess the performance of ITS deployment alternatives relative to each others and to other types of transportation system improvement alternatives. A Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) project developed a sketch- planning level tool, referred to as the Florida Intelligent Transportation System Evaluation Tool (FITSEVAL).

This tool was developed within the FSUTMS/Cube environment, allowing a flexible, user friendly, and consistent evaluation of ITS deployment alternatives. The FITSEVAL tool can evaluate more than ten types of ITS deployments and produce various performance measures including mobility, safety, energy, emission, and other user/agency specific measures. The outputs include the benefits, costs, and benefit/cost ratio that can be used for prioritizing improvement alternatives.

The following types of ITS deployments can be evaluated in the current version of FITSEVAL, although it can be extended to other applications:

  • Ramp metering
  • Incident management systems
  • Highway advisory radio (HAR) and dynamic message signs (DMS)
  • Advanced travel information systems
  • Managed lanes
  • Signal control
  • Transit vehicle signal priority
  • Emergency vehicle signal priority
  • Monitoring and management of fixed route transit
  • Transit information systems
  • Transit security systems
  • Transit electronic payment systems
  • Smart work zones
  • Road weather information systems (RWIS)
