INTRODUCTION
This document is a part of a set of documents to facilitate NHAI for implementation of the
Advanced Traffic Management System on National Highways. Government of India, Ministry
of Road Transport and particularly, NHAI have taken the initiative to provide guidelines for
ATMS implementation in the past and the references can be found in IRC:SP:87-2013
(Manual of Specification and Standards for Six-laning of Highways through PPP), IRC:SP:842014 (Manual of Specification and Standards for Four-laning of Highways through PPP), and
MoRTH manual prescribing Specification for Road and Bridge Works (5th Revision) etc. As
these references focused broadly on road infrastructure development, this document is
focused mainly on implementation of comprehensive and integrated Advanced Traffic
Management System (ATMS) on National Highways.
1.1 Purpose of this Document
The Purpose of this document is to identify the essential components / sub-components that
should necessarily be included in such a project and provide detailed functional
requirements and standards to be adhered to by such components / sub-components to
ensure achievement of desired safety, reliability, availability and environmental
requirements.
The Functional and Technical specifications prescribed in this document are the
minimum/benchmark requirements individually and collectively to be fulfilled by various
ATMS equipment and systems. However, to encourage adoption of best practices with
upcoming improved technologies in the field of Intelligent Transport System (ITS) with the
passage of time, the implementing agency shall ensure to offer latest and most relevant
technical solutions.
1.2 Scope of Document
Broadly, the ATMS implementation shall cover design, supply, installation, commissioning
and operation and maintenance of Advanced Traffic Management Systems (which is one of
the components of Intelligent Transport System – ITS). The system would include out-door
equipment including emergency call boxes, variable message sign systems, vehicle actuated
speed system, meteorological data system, close circuit TV camera (CCTV) system, traffic
counting and classification system, mobile radio communication system and transmission
system. The indoor equipment would comprise a large display board, central computer (with
Network Management System – NMS), CCTV monitor system, call centre system or
management of emergency call boxes housed in a control centre with uninterrupted power
supply. Any new technology, meeting the requirements specified in these specifications
should not be excluded. The systems shall meet following objectives:
 Smooth and uninterrupted traffic flow
 Enhance road safety
 Real time information and guidance to users
 Emergency assistance round the clock
 Alerts for abnormal road and weather conditions

to an incident, the message posted should be appropriate and precise. The messages and the
procedure for displaying them should be such that the information is grasped by a driver
whose primary focus is driving his vehicle while ensuring his and his co-passenger’s safety.
VMS boards envisaged are of 3 types: (i) Full VMS, (ii) Compact VMS and (iii) Portable VMS.
The main function of a full VMS (located at the entries to the highway and typically before
major junctions leading to alternate routes) is to display highway status and travel guidance
information while the Compact VMS’s main function is to warn vehicles of traffic congestion
in the cities / villages immediately ahead. The Portable VMS (toll be temporarily
commissioned near the incident location) will be used to warn road users of road works and
incidents that affect traffic flow. Portable VMS shall be mounted at the back of mobile vehicle
to show the sign of ‘men at work’ and / or speed limits in the construction zone and / or
traffic lane restrictions. These shall be powered by solar energy and / or battery.
Under no circumstances shall VMS be used for advertising of any kind. It would be in a blank
mode when traffic, roadway, environment or pavement conditions or public service
announcements do not warrant the display of message or messages.
7.3 Functional Requirements
1. A VMS message should be effective. To ensure effective messages, the message
themselves:
a) Shall fulfil a purpose
b) Shall command a short-span but definite attention.
c) Shall convey Information that is unambiguous and simple to comprehend.
d) Shall aim to elicit a definite and desired response from the driver
e) Shall be displayed early enough to provide adequate time to respond to the event.

FO is not possible) with single mode FO, Cat-5e/Cat-6 or copper coaxial links
between switches, camera, encoders etc.
c) VMS, Speed display and WIM – Low volume traffic can share backbone and
switch ports with CCTV. Switch to device may be FO, Cat-5e/Cat-6 or copper
coaxial/Twisted pair links. In case the equipment communicates through RS –
485 or RS – 422, suitable Ethernet to 485/422 converters need to be provided.
