CATT Map Gets Attention

Rahul Nair, a post doctorate research engineer with the Center for Advanced Transportation Technology has recently showed off one of CATT’s newest tools – an animated traffic map. The map uses data provided by INRIX as a part of the I-95 Corridor Coalition Vehicle Probe Project.

On the map, each section of the Capital Beltway is represented by a thin bar. Black portions of the bar mean speeds of less than 15 mph. Speeds of 60 mph and above are represented by green, with orange and red representing speeds in between 15 and 60.
