OVERVIEW:

This module will provide participants with information on how to identify the appropriate use of the NTCIP 1202 Standard and acquire an Actuated Traffic Signal Controller or ASC system based on what the user is seeking to accomplish with support from tools and resources such as a Management Information Base (MIB), conformance groups and the Systems Engineering (SE) Process. This module helps the participant understand the interdependency of NTCIP 1202 objects to the architecture and functionality of NEMA TS2. The module addresses the application of 1202 Standard to address functional issues in usage of controllers such as life cycle of flash RAM.

  Ken Vaughn received his bachelor’s degree from Tulane University and his master’s from Texas A&M. He coordinated traffic signals in Los Angeles County in the early 1990’s and his graduate research studied the performance of actuated signals in coordinated systems. In 1994, he became involved in ITS standards and was a founding member of the NTCIP Joint Committee in 1995. He has provided consulting and NTCIP testing services signals and signal systems for numerous agencies throughout his career. And he will lead the discussion today on the user needs for signal system masters.

COURSE CREDIT: 1.5 PDH/.2 IACET CEU

To receive course credit, you must attend and participate in the webinar and complete an evaluation survey immediately after the webinar ends.
OVERVIEW:

The purpose of this module is to teach the students how to identify and write user needs specific to the NTCIP 1205 v01 CCTV Standard, which does not currently contain user needs.

The focus of this module is to assist technical staff in developing a set of user needs that meet operational needs to support traffic management and traveler information service functions.

This module will provide participants with information on how to identify the appropriate use of the NTCIP 1205 v01 Standard and acquire a CCTV system based on what the user is seeking to accomplish with support from tools and resources such as an MIB and conformance groups and statement, in following a Systems Engineering (SE) Process.

TARGET AUDIENCE: • Engineering staff
• TMC/Operations staff
• System developers
• Private and public sectors users
• Traveler and other information service providers
RECOMMENDED PREREQUISITES: • I101: Using ITS Standards: An Overview
• A101: Introduction to Acquiring Standards-based ITS Systems

• C201: Introduction to the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and its Applications in the Field Devices Based on NTCIP Standards
LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

At the conclusion of the course, participants should be able to:

1. Explain the structure of the NTCIP 1205 CCTV Standard
2. Identify CCTV specific operational needs
