The objective of this research is to perform evaluation tests related to the transmission of digitized video signals over ISDN and/or T-1 lines between a video traffic reporting camera and a traffic management center. The quality of the received video signals was assessed for effectively monitoring the traffic conditions. An evaluation plan was developed describing the tests to be performed; hardware specifications for the T-1 and ISDN connections, and cameras were provided; the evaluation tests was performed and data was collected; a final report summarizing the findings of this project including a cost/benefit analysis was delivered to the participating agencies. This project is an extension of the current efforts of the Urban ITS Center at Polytechnic University related to the video transmission over analog wireless lines and/or CDPD networks.
