A Qualitative Assessment of the Lexington Automated Incident Detection System

Grants and Contracts Details


The work plan will be subdivided into the following tasks: Task 1: Task 2: Task 3: Task 4: Support will be provided to the LFUCG Division of Traffic Engineering with the implementation of the Automated Incident Detection system. KTC will assist as needed with locating the incident detection sensors and with selecting and finetuning the detection algorithms. Specifically, KTC staffwill serve on a subcommittee of the Incident Management Committee to advise on the selection of specific locations for each technology. A detailed evaluation plan for the Automated Incident Detection system will be developed. This plan will describe an in-depth evaluation of the system including such factors as cost (both startup and ongoing), benefits (both qualitative and quantitative), performance measurements, and stakeholders. A top-level, primarly qualitative analysis of the Automated Incident Detection system will be conducted. KTC will identify the benefits of the system and assess the impact of the system on the stakeholders (including LFUCG agencies, emergency response personnel, and motorist). To the extent possible (based on data availability), this evaluation will include a comparative evaluation of the incident detection sensors an
