PUBLICATIONS AND TECHNICAL PAPERS
AREAS OF EXPERTISE
Carl Shaflik has particular experience in the following technical areas:
INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS (ITS)
Carl Shaflik has been an active member of ITS Canada for the past 15 years and keeps current with the latest in research and development of ITS. In particular Mr Shaflik is active in ITS Canada’s foreign development section and has participated in several ITS trade missions to the Peoples Republic of China including the Hong Kong SAR.
Carl Shaflik specializes in the research of ITS technologies and the design and supervision for the implementation and deployment of ITS systems. In particular Mr Shaflik has been a major designer of the various Driver Information Display Systems throughout British Columbia, and a key team member, Engineer of Record, and Owner’s Engineer for the Trans Canada Highway (Vancouver Section) Traffic Management System. Mr Shaflik is also a key development member for the British Columbia ITS Strategic Plan specializing in Advanced Traveller Information Systems (ATIS) and Road Weather Information Systems (RWIS) and in the Shanghai ITS Strategic Plan specializing in field systems.
Carl Shaflik has most recently worked as the Foreign Traffic / E&M Engineer for the ITS and other related Traffic Engineering Systems on several expressway projects in the PR China.
Carl Shaflik specializes in the field integration of ITS user systems such as CCTV surveillance systems, automated incident detection systems, dynamic message sign systems, and vehicle-to-roadside communication systems; and ITS support systems including mounting structure design, power distribution systems, and communication systems.
Carl Shaflik has produced a technical paper which analyses the problems of field integration of ITS and other related highway systems and provides recommendations on efficient planning and design. This technical paper is available on the Shaflik Engineering website at www.shaflik.com.
Carl Shaflik has undertaken the design and construction supervision of freeway and expressway safety systems. These systems include the safety aspects of roadway and area lighting, safety aspects of tunnels, the proper placement of signing, traffic signals systems, guardrails and barriers, and anti-dazzling devices. Mr Shaflik has produced a technical paper regarding the efficient placement of detectors at traffic signals and how they affect the roadway safety of the installation. This technical paper is available on the Shaflik Engineering website at www.shaflik.com.
