What is the Value of ITS?
- ITS address the critical challenges!
- Efficiency, Safety, Security and Sustainability
- Relative to Infrastructure… ITS is CHEAP
- ITS projects typically cost $100Ks to $1Ms
- Infrastructure projects can cost $100Ms
- Benefit/Cost Ratios of ITS projects are HIGH
- Stand-alone ITS projects sit at about 9:1
- Integrated ITS projects jump to 23:1
BOTTOM LINE:
Planning ITS projects
so that they can be integrated
is clearly critical!!
What is a SMART CORRIDOR?
What makes a corridor “SMART”?
• Integrating existing and new ITS to improve
operational efficiency
• Sharing information among systems to achieve
benefits of coordinated operations
Opportunities
•
•
•
•
•
Electronic filing of credentials/reporting
Automated means of inspection
Automated authentication of vehicles, cargo, and
personnel
Seamless electronic transactions/payments
Readily accessible travel conditions information
Integration  Smart Corridor
How Do You Achieve
INTEGRATION?
To build a SMART CORRIDOR
we need INTEGRATION
To achieve INTEGRATION
we need COOPERATION
COOPERATION
• between organizations and agencies
• across borders
• from one jurisdiction to the next
How Do You Achieve
INTEGRATION?
We also need strong PLANNING
Strong ITS Plan  Smart Corridor
We have ITS PLANNING TOOLS
These TOOLS are built from basic COMPONENTS:
- The types of PLAYERS needed to deliver a service
- Vendor, Shipper, Consignee, Border Agency, Customs Agency
- The PHYSICAL components of the system
- Commercial Vehicle, Border Inspection Station, Administration Centres
- The INFORMATION exchanges between players
- Shipping Manifests, Driver Credentials, Safety Status, Routing, Customs
Payment Information, Inspection Reports
How Do You Achieve
INTEGRATION?
For example, we can identify the TYPES of PLAYERS…
Shipper
Commercial Vehicle
Enforcement
Agency
Driver
[Automated Commercial Vehicle Inspection Station By-Pass]
How Do You Achieve
INTEGRATION?
We can identify some of the PHYSICAL components…

How Do You Achieve
INTEGRATION?
And we can identify INFORMATION FLOWS…

How Do You Achieve
INTEGRATION?
Finally, when we take a step back…
we can see how all the PLAYERS interact!
The result is a perfectly
PLAN

How Do You Achieve
INTEGRATION?
This INTEGRATED PLAN is called:
The NATIONAL ITS ARCHITECTURE
It can be applied to a specific REGION to create:
A REGIONAL ITS ARCHITECTURE
Using these TOOLS we can build a CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS.
How Do You Achieve
INTEGRATION?
What’s the Process?
(For developing a Regional ITS Architecture)

The Ontario-Québec
Smart Corridor
Some of the Basics…
Who?
•
•
•
Transport Canada, Ontario Ministry of Transportation, Ministère des
transports du Québec
IBI Group, Roche Consulting, Cambridge Systematics, ConSysTec
Many Stakeholders
What?
•
Develop Concept of Operations and Regional ITS Architecture for the
Ontario-Québec Corridor
When?
•
April 2011  March 2012
The Ontario-Québec
Smart Corridor
1. Define the Region
The Ontario-Québec
Smart Corridor
2. Identify Stakeholders
Multi-modal:
•
•
•
Surface, Air, Rail, Marine
Freight/Goods Movement Focus
Includes Border Crossings!!
Includes all levels of Government:
•
•
•
Transport Canada, CBSA, CBP, FHWA
Ontario Ministry of Transportation, Ministère des transports du
Québec, State of Michigan Department of Transportation
Numerous regions and municipalities throughout the corridor
Includes Private Sector:
•
Industry Associations, Commercial Carriers
We will continue to add Stakeholder throughout the project
The Ontario-Québec
Smart Corridor
2. Identify Stakeholders
We have engaged Stakeholder through:
•
Two series of workshops
1st Round of Workshops:
•
•
•
•
Focused on engaging Stakeholders
Discussed vision and “Architecture” process
Discussed needs and services
Windsor, Toronto, Ottawa/Gatineau, Montréal, Sherbrooke, Québec
2nd Round of Workshops:
•
•
•
•
•
Reviewed the vision for the “Smart Corridor”
Feedback on Stakeholder descriptions
Feedback on preliminary ITS Systems inventory
Reviewed operational scenarios and information flows
Windsor, Toronto, Ottawa/Gatineau, Montréal, Québec
The Ontario-Québec
Smart Corridor
3. Inventory Systems
An inventory of the ITS Systems in the corridor:
•
•
•
Collected by Stakeholder Survey
Verified at 2nd Stakeholder Workshops
Continues to be updated…
4. Determine Needs and Services
Needs and Services were discussed with Stakeholders:
•
•
•
Discussed through “Breakout” sessions at Workshops
SWOT Analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats)
Continues to be updated…
The Ontario-Québec
Smart Corridor
4. Determine Needs and Services
Stakeholders identified the need to improve:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
The coordination and dissemination of real-time traveller
information
Traffic management including incident management and interjurisdictional coordination
The efficiency of border customs inspections
The efficiency of international crossings and other tolled facilities
The efficiency of intermodal transfer points
The efficiency of roadside safety inspections
Management of dangerous goods movements
Commercial vehicle on-board systems
Tracking of shipments
The Ontario-Québec
Smart Corridor
Next Steps
Concept of Operations
•
All stakeholders to reach consensus on the Concept of Operations
•
Develop a list of proposed projects and required inter-agency
agreements
Continue to work with Stakeholders
•
There are two “Webinar” sessions scheduled in the up-coming
months to confer on the results
Share the Results
•
This process is meant to guide stakeholder investment
