The Transportation Research Board Committee on Traffic Signal Systems has recently focused its attention on the developmental needs of advanced traffic signal systems and traffic management. The Committee has examined the research needs related to the development of these systems and has drawn together several that apply directly to the improvement of traffic signal and traffic management systems. The results of the Committee's efforts are presented in this Circular which includes the following: A report on "Planning Issues of Advanced Traffic Management Systems", which is a summary of Committee discussions on the planning issues of traffic signal control systems; A white paper, "Definition of Functional Requirements and Identification of Potential Research Initiatives", in which (1) the functional requirements of Advanced Traffic Signal Control Systems are identified, (2) the ability of the existing "typical" traffic signal control systems to deliver each functional requirement is rated, and (3) the areas that need to be researched are also prioritized; and A set of Research Problem Statements grouped into various technology categories.
