URBAN TRAFFIC CONTROL AND BUS PRIORITY SYSTEM. VOLUME II. OPERATOR'S MANUAL
This manual describes the equipment, functional operation, and the procedures for operating the integrated Urban Traffic Control System (UTCS)/Bus Priority System (BPS). The UTCS and BPS together comprise an integrated computer-controlled traffic system. The UTCS can operate independently of the BPS, however, the converse is not true. The UTCS Computer must be on-line before the BPS Computer can be started up. Furthermore, the BPS cannot grant bus extensions until the UTCS has been brought on-line and has been activated, at least in part, for Critical Intersection Control (CIC) operation. Section 2, Functional Operation, summarizes and describes in some detail the various aspects of the UTCS/BPS functional operation. Section 3, Equipment Description, includes an overall system block diagram together with a description of individual components. Section 4, Operating Procedrues, provides step-by-step procedures including system start up and shutdown, traffic surveillance, mode operation, malfunction detection and management, and data accumulation and reporting. Section 5, Reference Tables and Manuals, describes the contents and use of the Cross Reference Directory and other reference tables, as well as a list of reference manuals. Appendices are also included.
