slide 7: MD WZ PM Project

  • Phase 1-Foundational Research
    • Determine Adequcy of 3rd Part Probe Data for Real-time and Historical Work Zone Performance
    • Develop agreed upon Work Zone Performance Measures
    • DevelopPROTOTYPE user interface "dashboard"
    • Conduct meeting with potential users
    • Validate WZ PM output (based on 3rd party probe data) Using Bluetooth devices in 1 work zone
  • Phase 2- WZ PM Application Development
    • Develop functional WZ PM software application
