The Advanced Traffic Management System is an Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) process that employs a variety of technology; including traffic detectors, monitoring cameras, and communication systems which will monitor traffic, optimize traffic signal timing, control the flow of traffic, and increase maintenance efficiency by receiving real time information from the field.

There are many other categories which fall under the definition of Intelligent Transportation Systems.  This graphic shows a few of those categories.  the Manatee ATMS projects incorporate two of the systems shown; Arterial Management and Traffic Incident Management.  County staff are actively investigating other projects that will also make use of this investment.  Click the link below for more information.
