LUBBOCK, TEXAS BRIDGES THE GAP BETWEEN UTCS AND CLOSED LOOP SYSTEMS
Lubbock, Texas operates approximately 300 signalized intersections and does so with a computer-based signal system that was implemented in the early 1980s. This system was built as a renovation and replacement of the PR Centralized Traffic Control System which the City had installed in the late 1960s. The system focuses into a single location all of the tools and technologies that are needed to manage the diverse complement of signalized intersections which constitute the Lubbock Signal System. The initial configuration of signalized intersections, which were operated under the MTCS host, are all directly connected, controllers that were managed under second-by-second supervisory technology that employed field RCU telemetry units for this purpose.
