UFTI Collaborates with FDOT to Support Advanced Technologies Installation Along I-75 Through FRAME Project

I-75 FRAME (Florida’s Regional Advanced Mobility Elements) is a project that will use advanced communications and traffic management technologies to optimize the use of transportation infrastructure for improved safety and mobility. The project, which is part of I-STREET, will instrument 74 miles along I-75 and 82 miles of US 301/US441.

  • The project will deploy the following advanced transportation management technologies Adaptive Signal Control Technology (ASCT)
  • Multimodal Intelligent Traffic Signal System (MMITSS) with Intelligent Signal (I-SIG) to emit Signal Phasing and Timing (SPaT) data
  • Pedestrian Signal (PED-SIG) safety technology
  • Transit Signal Priority (TSP), Freight Signal Priority (FSP)
  • Emergency Vehicle Preemption (PREEMPT) on selected corridors.

New arterial technologies will be used to improve operations, monitor traffic and infrastructure, and add data-driven signal performance measures on selected corridors. Connected vehicle on-board units (OBUs) will be used on transit buses and other vehicles to increase travel time reliability and on-time performance. Advanced safety systems will be deployed through vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications and mobile app technology. Transportation system performance data will be collected, analyzed, and disseminated. The project spans both FDOT Districts 2 and 5. A systems manager has been selected in both districts, and the current production dates are the third quarter of 2018 for District 2 and the first quarter of 2019 for District 5. Vendor meetings, data collection, and survey are underway to allow for seamless integration of this combined effort. The planned deployment map is shown below.
