1. Introduction

IRIS is an advanced traffic management system. It is used to control field devices (signs, ramp meters, etc.) and collect traffic data.


2. Installation

Install the Java Runtime Environment, version 7. This must be done by someone with local admin privileges. If you attempt to install it without proper privileges, the installation will fail and you will get a "bad installation" error.


3. Joysticks

Camera pan, tilt and zoom may optionally be controlled with a joystick. For this feature to work on Windows, a couple of external software packages must be installed. They are Python, and PyGame. Installing these packages requires admin privilegdes.


4. Running

To run IRIS, click here.

IRIS requires unrestricted network and PC access. By design, Java Web Start restricts this access. You will be prompted to allow unrestricted access but advised not to do so. Disregard this advice and click the "Start" button to allow access. After that, you may start up the Java Web Start Application Manager and run it from there.


5. Support
