Transit Vehicle Operator (Terminator*)This terminator represents the human entity that receives and provides additional information that is specific to operating the ITS functions in all types of transit vehicles. . To support transit vehicle security features, the Transit Vehicle Operator can input to the Transit Vehicle Subsystem a silent alarm. The operator can also be required to enter an authentication command (used to enable operation of the vehicle). The information received by the operator would include status of on-board systems. Additional information received depends upon the type of transit vehicle. In the case of fixed route transit vehicles, the Transit Vehicle Operator would receive operator instructions that might include actions to take to correct schedule deviations. In the case of flexible fixed routes and demand response routes the information would also include dynamic routing or passenger pickup information.
