AN EVALUATION OF NETWORK SIGNAL TIMING TRANSITION ALGORITHMS

Signal timing transition has been a problem since the multidial controller was invented. In a simple two-dial controller, the problem arises when control is switched from one dial to the other--say, at the beginning of the rush hour. The new control can have a different cycle length and offset, even a different signal display sequence. A transition must be used to get from the displays called for by the old dial to the displays required by the new. Several different types of transitions tested by the Office of Research, Federal Highway Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation are described here. /Author/
