A Guide to Effective Adaptive Traffic Control Systems

This article will discuss how transportation agencies around the world are facing the need for improvement in the management of transportation networks under their control. One of the challenges is the safe and effective control of large-scale traffic light systems. As one of the solutions, some agencies are installing Adaptive Traffic Control Systems (ATCS). This article focuses on the potential functional requirements for selection of these ATCS and also establishes the groundwork for the procurement and installation of these systems. Better planning for in-house support is an essential component for decision-making on future ATCS. This is especially important for adequate preparations of detection and communication infrastructure.
