PIONEER APPLICATION OF PASSER IV IN THE HOUSTON METRO-RCTSS PROJECT

The Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (METRO) is currently conducting the Regional Computerized Traffic Signal System project in the Houston metropolitan area. This project involves optimization of signal timings at 3000 intersections and is one of the largest undertakings of this type in the country. This study concerns the application of PASSER IV, a new progression-bandwidth-based program that optimizes network signal timing, to two subsystems located at the Texas Medical Center, south of downtown Houston. These systems were selected by METRO for early implementation.
