1. A modular intelligent transportation system, comprising:

  • an environmentally protected enclosure, suitable for protecting electronic equipment from uncontrolled weather conditions;

    a traffic signal interface adapted for at least one of receiving a signal indicating a state of a traffic signal, and producing a signal for controlling a state of a traffic signal;

    a processor module and memory, within said enclosure, communicating with said traffic signal interface, receiving at least one of an audio data input, and an image data input, said processor module analyzing data patterns represented in at least one of said audio input and image data input, and said memory storing at least a portion of said audio and image data inputs;

    at least one option port, within said enclosure, providing an available location for hardware, wherein said processor module has sufficient additional processing capacity to undertake additional processing tasks relating to hardware located in the at least one option port;

    a bus, within said enclosure, providing an interface between said processor and hardware within said at least one option port;

    a power supply, within said enclosure, providing power to said processor module and memory and to hardware located within the at least one option port; and
