Traffic Systems Webinar

Hosted by Dr. Alex Stevanovic and the Pittsburgh Intelligent Transportation Systems Lab. Please register to attend.

Adaptive Traffic Control Systems (ATCSs) help traffic signals to cope with varying traffic demand by changing duration of green lights to accommodate hourly, daily, and seasonal traffic fluctuations. These systems have been in use since the late ‘70s but have only received significant attention in the US during the last 10 years. Since 2008 the number of these systems in the US has increased by more than 600%. A brief literature review clearly shows a shortage of comprehensive studies which would document success of these systems to improve traffic experiences. In this webinar we will be talking about a recent NCHRP (National Cooperative Highway Research Program) study where we addressed some of these gaps by developing a framework and a tool to comprehensively analyze success of ATCSs deployed and evaluated in the US.

Tuesday, May 26 at 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
