Summary Information


There are a number of ITS initiatives in Minnesota in both operation and in development. This document presents an annual report of the Mn/DOT OTST ITS Section’s funded activities for fiscal year July 1, 2009 through June 30, 2010. These activities include initiatives led by the ITS Section and initiatives led by other agencies in which the ITS Section played a funded supporting role.

The Cooperative Intersection Collision Avoidance Systems (CICAS) initiative will determine the optimal combination of infrastructure and in-vehicle systems needed to address a full range of intersection crash problems. The CICAS initiative will integrate two types of intersection collision avoidance systems—infrastructure-based and vehicle-based. The present deployment warns drivers of unsafe gaps in traffic at rural thru-stop intersections. Other areas are being studied.


The six-year CICAS project cost is $5,222,635.
