Transportation planners require software support to easily monitor and dispatch transportation resources, especially when transportation is multimodal and when resources from different companies in their network are being used. We call such an application a transportation control tower. This paper presents a software architecture for transportation control towers. It focuses in particular on the novel aspects of the software architecture. These are: the ability to easily configure the monitoring of resources and tasks; the ability to create the statements for monitoring resources and tasks based on the transportation plan; and the ability to dynamically adjust the monitoring statements. A prototype of the software architecture is implemented and evaluated on three usage scenarios.
