Introduction

Global Autonomous Traffic Emergency System William J. Lawson, Ph.D. Ruby Lawson AT&T, Global Network Services AT&T 213-C Room number 3405 W. Dr. M.L. King, Jr. Blvd Street Address Tampa, FL 33607 City, ST Zip (813) 878-3259 (908) 555-1212 wjl@att.com Ruby_lawson@hotmail.com ABSTRACT Traffic control system tracts the movement of vehicles as they travel through defined traffic blocks and optimize the travel of vehicles in accordance with a multi-level priority scheme. Each traffic block is defined in the Traffic Control Software and by placing a tag in a haulage area. Enhancement of this tool is necessary to accommodate future Traffic Control System requirements. This paper will concentrate on that effort. 1. INTRODUCTION First allow us to take a moment and full acknowledge that the idea of a system to manage the flow of emergency traffic is not new one. There are many companies that develop, manufacture, distribute, and install emergency traffic management systems. Have you ever been wedged in bumper-to-bumper traffic with a stoplight to your front and an emergency vehicle (Ambulance, Fire Truck, Police) with sirens blaring to your rear? So, what do you? Where do you go? ...read more.

> GOOD - Any of the existing traffic management systems are not costly to implement, because each systems stands alone. That is to say that all of the equipment is located at the traffic light and is not reliant upon another system. This also means that a community has the flexibility of buying one system or 100. Which is extremely beneficial for small community and cost effective. > BAD - Ironically, what is beneficial for a small community is bad for large community. Why? The fact that each unit stands alone is a drain on maintenance and would be costly for a large community. > UGLY - The system is not adaptive and does not take into account traffic flow. Now let us take a moment to examine the vehicle locating systems, you will notice that they employ GPS technology. A GPS system is excellent for tracking a vehicle, but it is not employed in any emergency traffic management system that we could find. 4. OUR CONCEPT We can do better!!! Our concept is to create an Global Autonomous Traffic Emergency System (GATES) that will seize the benefits of GPS and 1.1 Second Level Header Second-level headers are Initial Caps Only. ...read more.
