oThe PVMS are to be used for the upcoming Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in November 2010 as it was previously used by the Department of Transport [DoT] for the Formula One 2009, and Fifa Club World Cup 2009 which was held at the Zayed Sports City and Mohammad Bin Zayed stadiums,o said Engineer Faisal Ahmad Al Suwaidi, general director of main roads at the Department of Transport in Abu Dhabi.
PVMS are commonly used globally to provide drivers with warnings and up-to-date information and have proved extremely effective in reducing and preventing speed-related accidents.
Al Suwaidi said PVMS is being used as a short-term solution until permanent VMS and Intelligent Transportation Systems are installed possibly within the next three years.
These distributed control systems are monitored by two other G2-based expert systems--the Process Variable Monitoring System (PVMS) and the Network Monitoring System (NMS).
PVMS and NMS are capable of displaying the rules used to infer the alarm condition, thus assisting personnel in determining the root cause of the condition.
