|Surface Transportation Efficiency Analysis Model (STEAM)||SCRITS|
SCRITS (SCReening for ITS) is a spreadsheet analysis tool for estimating the user benefits of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). It is intended as a sketch-level or screening-level analysis tool to allow practitioners to obtain an initial indication of the possible benefits of various ITS applications. It is not intended for detailed analysis. For situations requiring greater accuracy, practitioners may wish to use more sophisticated tools such as simulation models or the IDAS analysis tool currently being developed for FHWA. SCRITS was developed in response to the need for simplified estimates in the early stages of ITS-related planning, in the context of a either a focused ITS analysis, a corridor/subarea transportation study, or regional planning analysis.
