Research efforts by the ITS Research Program have produced applications
that may be executed over the network. Following the links below will give you further information about how to execute each of the applications.
- Trafnet displays real-time,
Seattle area traffic conditions on your Window's based PC. Unlike a Web
site, TrafNet stores all graphics on your computer and only uses the
Internet to obtain small data files. The program is freely available and
useable by all interested persons.
- The Busview
program is currently available as a Java applet. It allows the user to
check on the current status of Metro buses in King County by displaying a real-time map. The bus information is updated approximately every
- The Seattle Smart Traveler (SST)
program was a unique, on-line ridematching system developed as part of
the SWIFT project. It allowed people to
perform "on-demand" carpooling as well as traditional carpooling. This
meant that you could look for one-time only rides for special trips or
you could look for a person to share your daily commute. SST also
helped riders communicate instantly, electronically with other travelers.
off-line demonstration of the SST program can still be viewed at the
SST web site even
though the dynamic, on-line version is no longer active.
