New lamps for old

This paper presents a report on the adoption of Light Emitting Diode (LED) Traffic Signal Lanterns in South Australia. LED Lanterns represent third generation in Lantern Technology and are the most significant advance in Traffic Signal Lanterns to date. Transport SA is the first Australian State to embark in widespread replacement of old traffic signal lanterns with LED lanterns. Upgrading to LED lanterns will reduce power consumption and green house gas emissions, while offering extended service life and improved levels of safety for road users. Where required, the associated traffic signal controller hardware and/or personality program has been upgraded to enable monitoring of LED lanterns.
