As a symbol of economic growth, the deployment of an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) became a necessity of a country, especially in a developing country. The Advanced Transportation Management System (ATMS) is one of the pivotal subsystems of ITS. With the development of digital image processing, the deployment of such a system can be implemented in an effective and economical way. The process of constructing an ATMS with minimum cost and time will be an important criterion in the selection of such a system for a developing country. In this paper, a spiral development method for an ATMS based on prototype was presented in order to overcome the shortcomings of the traditional waterfall model. The focus on the spiral development is to improve the design concepts and system requirements to avoid large-scale modification in the later development phases due to errors caused in the early ones. An applied architecture is constituted with the innovative technologies, e.g. 4th-generation mobile technology (4G), high-speed optical fiber communication technology with a national traffic communication backbone network in China, which ensures the latest technology is available to traffic management.
