Adaptive Signal Control Technologies Are Also Kinder To The Environment.
Faster Responses to Traffic Conditions The traditional signal timing process is time consuming and requires substantial amounts of manually collected traffic data. Adaptive Signal Control Technologies acct, in conjunction with well engineered signal timing, can do just that. Implementing acct will maximize the capacity of existing systems, ultimately reducing costs for both system users and operating agencies. Available adaptive signal control technologies include the Split Cycle Offset Optimization Technique SCOOT, Sydney Coordinated Adaptive Traffic System cats, Real Time Hierarchical Optimized Distributed Effective System Rhodes, and Optimized Policies for Adaptive Control OPEC “Virtual Fixed Cycle” and AC Lit. Traditional Time-of-Day signal timing plans do not accommodate variable and unpredictable traffic demands. Maybe the crossroads was empty, yet the light stayed red for a maddening amount of time. With acct, information is collected and signal timing is updated continually. On average, travellers spend 36 hours per year in traffic tie ups. In areas with particularly outdated signal timing, improvements can be 50 percent or more. More important for travellers, signal timing updates are made as situations occur—stopping many complaints from ever happening.
