Developing system for consistent messaging on Interstate 80's dynamic message signs by Michelle Edwards ( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Traveler Information Systems, a part of the larger field of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), were originally utilized in urban areas to reduce congestion. Traveler information has become increasingly important in rural areas, especially in areas with adverse weather conditions, such as Wyoming. Dynamic message signs (DMSs) are often used to provide information during a traveler's trip. Current research literature does not contain much guidance for the rural use of DMSs. This report will analyze the effectiveness of traveler information, with a focus on the use of DMSs on the I-80 corridor between Laramie and Cheyenne in southeast Wyoming, using several methods including evaluation of the consistency of past DMS messages, surveys of both frequent and random travelers, and statistical analyses of the correlation between speed, weather, and DMS data. The current message decision system utilized by the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) will also be described and evaluated. A framework for future development of an advanced decision support system using realtime speed and weather data will be discussed along with suggested modifications to the current traveler information system to improve its effectiveness in the short term"--Abstract

Evaluation of an active wildlife-sensing and driver warning system at Trapper's Point by Qiyue Dai ( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Collisions with wildlife are a serious concern on American highways. In Wyoming, the concern has prompted the Wyoming Department of Transportation to construct an experimental wildlife detection and driver warning system at Trappers Point, north of the town of Pinedale on US Highway 191. The focus of this thesis is two-fold: to develop a framework to determine whether the driver warning system is effective at modifying driver behavior and to develop a framework to determine whether the wildlife detection system reliably detects the presence wildlife on the roadside. Transportation agencies have attempted to solve the deer-vehicle collision problem with a wide variety of solutions. Published literature was reviewed to analyze the effectiveness of these solutions with a spotlight on other active, wildlife-detecting driver warning systems. The system at Trappers Point utilizes the Eagle Intrusion Detection System (EIDS), originally developed by Telonics, Inc for military applications. Seismic and passive infrared sensors are designed to detect the presence of wildlife and trigger the flashing lights atop six signs that read 'DEER ON ROAD WHEN FLASHING'. Many difficulties with the wildlife detection system and data collection equipment were experienced during this study. This report describes these problems in detail and analyzes the system using three measures of effectiveness: accurate detection of wildlife, changes in driver behavior, and crash reduction
