ISS' Autoscope systems have been used in Atlanta since 1996, when they were first deployed for the Summer Olympic Games The Summer Olympic Games or the Games of the Olympiad are an international multi-sport event held every four years, organised by the International Olympic Committee. .

The areas included in the project required an additional 13 Autoscope 2004 V8 Incident Detection systems, processing traffic images from nearly 99 zoom lens traffic cameras to collect real-time traffic data and transmit the information to NAVIGATOR applications for display and analysis. The I-475 expansion consists of 23.9 kilometers of roadway management and expansion, and the delivery of additional Georgia DOT video detection system server computers to facilitate system management.
NAVIGATOR is designed to gather information from a variety of sources, a video monitoring and detection system, Highway Emergency Response Operators The Highway Emergency Response Operators program is a freeway service patrol operated in metro Atlanta, USA by the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT). It is a part of GDOT's Office of Traffic Operations. (HEROs), and the public via mobile telephone. NAVIGATOR processes the information using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software, and then formulates an appropriate response plan. The response plan is reviewed prior to implementation by NAVIGATOR and being communicated to the motoring public. This permits the motorist to make informed decisions about a variety of transportation options and routes.
The high level of interagency integration sets Georgia's system apart from other transportation management networks around the country. NAVIGATOR links the Transportation Management Center (TMC TMC Technology Marketing Corporation (Norwalk, Connecticut)

(MARTA), creating an intelligent transportation network spanning more than 220 freeway miles. These satellite facilities manage surface street traffic within their respective jurisdictions. This broad system allows local, regional, state and federal officials to communicate more effectively, as well as manage Georgia's transportation system more efficiently.
The Autoscope Video Detection Systems (VDS (Virtual DMA Services) A programming interface that lets bus mastering devices cooperatively manage DMA channels. ), provides real-time images of road conditions and serves as an incident verification tool. Operators at the TMC are able to verify incidents quickly and efficiently, reducing response time, speeding up the removal of incidents and minimizing congestion The condition of a network when there is not enough bandwidth to support the current traffic load.
congestion - When the offered load of a data communication path exceeds the capacity. .
Dr. Bill Sowell, Vice President-Business Development of ISS said today, "Autoscope is once again proud to have an opportunity to play an ongoing role in the Georgia DOT NAVIGATOR program, which is among the finest Intelligent Transportation Systems in the nation. The addition of these Autoscope 2004 V8 systems to NAVIGATOR, will provide real-time information on average vehicle speed, traffic volume, vehicle classification and incident response and clearance times."
