Transportation Statistics

AMES DMI Video Data Logger

Serving as an FDOT District Three prime consultant for the Districtwide Traffic Counts and Projections Contract and the Districtwide Roadway Characteristics Inventory Contract, HSA has demonstrated the ability to successfully manage and produce multi-task, large-scale projects for almost three decades.

As the prime consultant for these Transportation Statistics contracts, HSA’s primary tasks include conducting the Districtwide Annual Traffic Counts Inventory and performing Roadway Characteristics Inventory (RCI) QA/QC. Additionally, we conduct traffic operational analysis, roadway and intersection capacity analysis, and provide assistance on Project Development and Environmental (PD&E) studies. We strive to work closely with the Department in a staff-extension capacity to consistently exceed expectations.

HSA is fully equipped with traffic data collection equipment including the latest automated traffic volume and classification counters, the AMES DMI Video Data Logger for Roadway Inventories, mobile device data collection applications, video monitoring systems, and custom processing software. With our fleet vehicles fully equipped with the latest data collection equipment and available software, we can rapidly deploy equipment, process, and deliver high quality data to the Department. HSA employs trained permanent staff who specialize in traffic data collection, processing software and data analysis. All HSA technicians have received certificates in Intermediate Maintenance of Traffic or Advanced Maintenance of Traffic along with specialized training in their specific field.

The use of our in-house engineered Video Monitoring Systems for Turning Movement Counts and the AMES DMI Video Data Logger for Roadway Inventories, combined with customized processing software, we are able to minimize impacts to the traveling public and reduce the time a technician is in the field. In addition to increased safety, we have also increased efficiency by eliminating additional field visits and using the software to count vehicles faster than real time. Although these video systems serve different purposes they allow HSA to have verifiable and defendable data which we make available to our client’s upon request.
