MOVA (Microprocessor Optimised Vehicle Actuation) is the new signal control strategy researched and developed by the Transport and Road Research Laboratory for isolated (uncoordinated) road traffic intersections. The method is implemented by equipment based upon a microprocessor, which can be connected to any modern United Kingdom traffic signal controller. The MOVA strategy has been fully described elsewhere (see IRRD 816386). Included in this data set-up guide are: (1) explanations of fundamental decisions which must be made before detailed site data can be specified; (2) a description of the MOVASETUP program which has been written to assist data preparation; (3) an item by item description of all the data; and (4) case studies of hypothetical junctions to illustrate what is required. This Application Guide is one of three guides which together provide the user with detailed information on the MOVA method, its application and use. For Application Guides 10 and 12 see IRRD nos 829536 and 829538.
