Hawaii Statewide ITS Architecture


(Printable Version)

The Regional ITS Architecture provides a starting point for project definition. It provides an overall framework that shows how anticipated projects will integrate with each other and with existing systems. This page lists all the ITS projects that have been mapped to the regional ITS architecture.

Near-term projects are scheduled for the next 5 years.  Long-term projects are planned for implementation more than 5 years out.

Project Name Project Status Timeframe Project Description
HDOT-AIR Communications Systems Upgrade Planned Long-Term This project will upgrade the HDOT-AIR communications network statewide to allow coordination with public safety and between HDOT-AIR facilities.
HDOT-HWY-V Deploy E-Screening at Sand Island Planned Long-Term This project will electronically identify vehicles as they approach Sand Island Facility.
HDOT-HWY-V Deployment of Virtual Weigh Station Planned Long-Term This project will deploy virtual weigh stations in Hawaii.
HDOT-HWY-V Modernize Vehicle Registration System Database Planned Long-Term This project will make on-line commercial vehicle renewals available to fleet operators; and enable authorized Federal, State, and county users to access vehicle registration data in real-time.
City and County of Honolulu Smarter Cities System Planned Near-Term This project is under development and creates a City Intelligent Operation Center, initially to support Emergency Management and Disaster Response; and ultimately to enhance day-to-day operations of the City. The Smart Cities system will connect to the Hawaii State EOC at the statewide level.
HDOT Website Update Planned Near-Term This project will redesign the HDOT statewide website for Highways, Airports, and Harbors divisions.
HDOT-HWY and City and County of Honolulu DTS Incident Management Coordination Planned Near-Term This project will create a coordinated incident management program involving both HDOT-HWY and C&C of Honolulu DTS, as well as first responder agencies.
HDOT-HWY CCTV Expansion Planned Near-Term This project will expand CCTV camera coverage on HDOT-HWY facilities.
HDOT-HWY DMS Expansion Planned Near-Term This project will add additional Dynamic Message Signs (DMS) on HDOT-HWY facilities.
HDOT-HWY Fiber Optic Network Planned Near-Term This project will expand the HDOT-HWY fiber optic network, and supplement it with the City and County of Honolulu's fiber optic network.
HDOT-HWY GoAkamai Traveler Information Upgrade Planned Near-Term This project will upgrade GoAkamai to provide additional functionality.
HDOT-HWY TMC Planned Near-Term This project will migrate existing systems to a new Traffic Management Center (TMC). This project will also include upgraded connections to the City and County of Honolulu's Department of Transportation Services (DTS) Traffic Management Center, and the Communications Centers for the Honolulu Police, Fire, and Emergency Medical Services Departments.
HDOT-HWY Traffic Sensor Expansion Planned Near-Term This project will expand traffic sensor coverage for spot speeds on HDOT-HWY facilities.
HDOT-HWY Travel Time Expansion Planned Near-Term This project will expand highway travel time coverage on HDOT-HWY facilities.
HDOT-HWY-V Automated VIC Process Planned Near-Term This project will automate the application, issuance, and receipt of Vehicle Identification Card (VIC) credential and support the real-time roadside effort of VIC credential. The intent is to provide on-line credentialing for VIC applications, with links to CVIEW so that VIC status may be cross-checked electronically during other credentialing processes.
HDOT-HWY-V CVIEW Planned Near-Term This project will deploy a CVISN-compliant Commercial Vehicle Information Exchange Window (CVIEW) that will serve as a primary data repository for credential (e.g., VIC), safety (e.g., out-of-service orders), motor carrier census, and Electronic Freight Manifest (EFM) data. CVIEW will also be the State conduit for downloading Federal motor carrier census and safety data and support intra-agency and inter-agency exchange of safety and credential information with authorized users as well as support motor carriers' review of their safety and credential data contained in Federal and State systems.
HDOT-HWY-V Trucking in Hawaii Web Portal Planned Near-Term This project will provide a single point of access for motor carriers to view commercial vehicle regulatory and enforcement information from all state agencies. Specifically, a trucking portal will minimize motor carrier effort required to collect information about CVO-related state agencies and programs; reduce time required by state personnel to respond to motor carrier inquiries; create a user experience that streamlines motor carrier operations; and provide a single storefront for the Hawaii CVO credentialing systems.
HIEMA Emergency Messages on DMS Planned Near-Term This project will create a connection to allow HIEMA to have the ability to put emergency messages on HDOT-HWY DMS. HIEMA would not have direct control of the signs, but provide information or messages via a center-to-center connection.
HIEMA Web EOC Upgrade Planned Near-Term This project will upgrade HIEMA's Web EOC capabilities to include hosting information in the cloud. This upgrade will allow multiple agencies outside of the Hawaii State EOC to access information on Web EOC.
HTA Smartphone App Planned Near-Term This project will deploy a Smart Phone App that can be used for general info and safety. The app will be developed first in English and Chinese, with Safety being the primary focus for version 1. In future versions, HTA plans to provide additional languages and integrate with flight information.
HTA Update of GoHawaii.com Website Planned Near-Term This project will update the GoHawaii.com website to include real time information on weather as well as emergency information.
Intermodal Fare Card Planned Near-Term This multi-agency project will deploy an intermodal fare card. Initially, the card will be used for transit fare collection by the City and County of Honolulu DTS's public transit provider and then by HART for transit fare payment. Ultimately, the card will be also used for payment of City services.

The Hawaiian language uses two diacritical markings. The 'okina is a glottal stop; and the kahako is a macron. The State of Hawaii strongly encourages the use of Hawaiian diacritical markings. The National ITS Architecture tool, Turbo Architecture, does not allow for the Hawaiian diacritical markings to be input and as such, customized service package diagrams, operational concepts and other outputs from Turbo are unable to reflect the diacritical markings. To ensure consistency in this ITS Architecture website, no Hawaiian diacritical markings will be used.
