Adaptive Signal Control Initiative and Validation Webinar
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Professional Capacity Building program will host a “Talking Technology and Transportation” webinar on Tuesday, September 18, 2012, from noon to 1:30 p.m. CT. The webinar will discuss a generic validation process, which allows the implementing agency to determine if the signal system deployed meets predetermined goals and objectives. The webinar will also provide examples of tools that will evaluate the effectiveness of the adaptive traffic signal technology installed. Adaptive Signal Control Technology (ASCT), part of Federal Highway Administration’s Every Day Counts initiative, adjusts the traffic signal timing to accommodate changing traffic patterns and ease traffic congestion. The Chicago Department of Transportation and Lake County Department of Transportation were both awarded Congestion Mitigation Air Quality Improvement program funds to implement ASCT in four select corridors.
