TIMS Integrated Performance System (TIPS) to Measure and Improve Traffic DataManagement and Maintenance

by Illinois State Toll Highway Authority (ISHTA)
This project addresses the issue of managing a rapidly expanding ITS system in order to properly implement it, demonstrate results, provide efficient, effective presentations to management, and make information-based decisions.

In 2013, the Illinois Tollway ITS team initiated the TIMS Integrated Performance System or TIPS because ITS expansion for the Illinois Tollway is occurring at a rapid rate. With this level of ITS investment, it was recognized that measurements are required to answer major information needs.

This project is unique in terms of:

  • Flexibility: Customizable reports provide multiple ways to access information
  • Efficiency: Concise and clear roadway and equipment performance metrics.
  • Appea: TIPS information is easy for multiple audiences to comprehend.
  • Clarity: The information supports short term actions in a very obvious way, demystifying ITS and specifically TIMS.
