ADDENDA TO URBAN TRAFFIC CONTROL AND BUS PRIORITY SYSTEM SOFTWARE MANUAL FOR UTCS/CIC, UTCS/MGVD AND UTCS/PBPS

The basic assembly language software developed for the UTCS/BPS is documented in the Urban Traffic Control and Bus Priority System Software Manual, Volume I (FHWA-RD-76-185) and Volume II (FHWA-RD-76-186). Subsequent to this documentation, three modifications to the basic software were made: (1) UTCS/CIC-to add a new critical intersection algorithm; (2) UTCS/MGVD-to accommodate a Magnetic Gradient Vehicle Detector (MGVD) being testing in the UTCS network; (3) UTCS/PBPS-to add a new bus priority algorithm. Because of the less universal application of these modified versions, it was decided not to generate three separate Software Manuals incorporating each modification. Instead, this document contains all the material with which to convert the basic software package to any one of the three modified versions by the replacement and addition of certain pages. A Foreward to each addendum section explains how the change material is to be used. In addition each addendum section includes a narrative description of how the modification functionally effects the system operation. (FHWA)
