                   Information Dissemination
                    Dynamic Message Signs (DMS)
     Organizations operating ITS can share information collected by detectors
     associated with arterial management systems with road users through
     technologies within the arterial network, such as dynamic messages signs or
     highway advisory radio. ITS operators may also send information to in-vehicle
     devices capable of displaying traveler information. Coordination with regional or
     multimodal traveler information efforts, as well as freeway and incident
     management programs, can increase the availability of information on arterial
     travel conditions.

     arterial network, such as dynamic messages signs or highway advisory radio. ITS
     operators may also send information to in-vehicle devices capable of displaying
     traveler information. Coordination with regional or multimodal traveler information
     efforts, as well as freeway and incident management programs, can increase the
     availability of information on arterial travel conditions.

                                  In-Vehicle Surveillance
       Video cameras monitor the interior of buses or train cars. Wireless communication can make
       images available to transit dispatch or transit management centers. Microphones and
       transmitters can also enable audio surveillance. Automatic vehicle location systems often
       incorporate silent alarm features, allowing operators to report problems and vehicle location
       to dispatchers.

        Organizations operating ITS can share information concerning ongoing incidents with road
        users through technologies deployed as part of incident management programs, such as
        dynamic messages signs or highway advisory radio. ITS operators may also send information
        to in-vehicle devices capable of displaying traveler information. Coordination with regional or
        multimodal traveler information efforts, as well as arterial and freeway management programs,
        can also increase the availability of incident-related information.

      A variety of roadside technologies, such as dynamic messages signs and highway advisory
      radio, can be used to provide travelers with weather-related travel information. Weather
      specific internet sites and phone information lines may also be implemented. ITS operators
      may also send information to in-vehicle devices capable of displaying traveler information.
      Coordination with regional or multimodal traveler information efforts like 511, as well as
      arterial, freeway and incident management programs, can increase the availability of
      information on weather conditions along roadways.
