Traffic Information and Condition Analysis System (TICAS) is a powerful traffic data collection and simulation software developed by the Northland Advanced Transportation Systems Research Laboratory (NATARL) at University of Minnesota Duluth. The data source of TICAS comes from the Minnesota freeway detectors which provide traffic flow rates, speed and density data every 30 seconds. The major advantage for using TICAS is it enables user to access corridor-based traffic information, such as travel time and vehicle miles traveled. Those traffic metrics are derived or estimated basing on the traffic raw data archived at Minnesota Traffic Management Center. Data from TICAS can be exported into EXCEL directly, which is convenient for large data collection.[1]
