Using Visual Simulation Tools And Learning Outcomes-Based Curriculum To Help Transportation Engineering Students And Practitioners To Better Understand And Design Traffic Signal Control Systems

The use of visual simulation tools to convey complex concepts has become a useful tool in education as well as in research. This report describes a project that developed curriculum and visualization tools to train transportation engineering students to more deeply understand complex traffic control systems and to have an increased ability to prepare designs to improve these systems. Prototype tools and curriculum developed as part of this project address several traffic signal operations modes including actuated control, coordination, and railroad preemption.
