OKI Regional ITS Plan - Regional ITS Architecture: System Inventory

System Inventory

It is important to understand how agencies in the OKI region, including ARTIMIS, interact with each other to exchange information, and achieve better system management and traffic operations. Within this section, the system inventory for the OKI region is documented and described in the following paragraphs. The system inventory provides a summary of systems that will be integrated in the OKI region and their associated connections to elements supported by the National architecture. In addition, Table B-3 provides system characteristics including a brief description, status, and associated stakeholder.

The status of each system (existing or planned) is given to help determine if connections with ARTIMIS and other regional stakeholders can be supported by existing systems or if new systems must be planned. The architecture mapping identifies the current or planned connections between systems and elements in the National ITS Architecture. Lastly, the associated stakeholder column identifies the agency that owns, and is responsible for maintenance and operation of the system.
