Multimodal Crossing Equipment Subsystem
'Multimodal Crossing Equipment' represents the control equipment that interfaces to a non-road based transportation system at an interference crossing with the roadway. The majority of these crossings are railroad grade crossings that are more specifically addressed by the 'Wayside Equipment' terminator. This multimodal crossing terminator addresses similar interface requirements, but for other specialized intersections like draw bridges at rivers and canals. These crossings carry traffic that may take priority over the road traffic at the intersection. The data provided will in its basic form be a simple 'stop road traffic' indication. However more complex data flows may be provided that give the time at which right-of-way will be required and the duration of that right-of-way requirement.
