There's a transportation seminar this Friday that some of you might
find of interest.

Friday, November 2, 2012
Room 204 of the Distance Learning Center Wing of the Urban Center on
the Portland State University campus. 12pm-1pm.

Abstract: TriMet has used a computer aided dispatch (CAD)/automatic
vehicle location (AVL) system to manage bus and rail operations since
the late 1990s. TriMet is currently in the process of updating the
CAD/AVL system, and anticipates improvements in bus tracking and
performance monitoring. This presentation will show how TriMet uses
data from the system to support intelligent transportation systems
(ITS) such as TransitTracker and automatic stop announcements in buses
and trains, as well as to analyze transit operations such as on time
performance and passenger loads.
