VEHICLE DETECTION, PHASE III: PASSIVE BUS DETECTOR/INTERSECTION PRIORITY SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT. OPTION II: MANUFACTURING DRAWINGS AND PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT
A production prototype 16-channel Passive Bus Detector (PBD) was developed, based on the engineering model Passive Bus Detector/Intersection Priority System. The PBD is functionally the same as the engineering model except that the traffic controller function was not carried along into the production prototype mode. The PBD was repackaged to facilitate production and evaluated in an intersection with a typical traffic controller. Operation in the intersection for a 2-month period was successful.
