THE FEASIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING WARRANTS FOR SIGNAL SYSTEMS

IT IS GENERALLY AGREED THAT A KEY FACTOR IN THE SOLUTION OF TRAFFIC CONGESTION PROBLEMS ON URBAN SURFACE STREETS IS THE EFFICIENT OPERATION OF TRAFFIC SIGNAL SYSTEMS. RECENT TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES HAVE RESULTED IN THE FORMATION OF A VARIETY OF SYSTEM CONFIGURATIONS, WHICH IN TURN HAS CREATED A QUESTION REGARDING THE FEASIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING WARRANTS FOR THE UTILIZATION OF SPECIFIC TYPES OF SIGNAL SYSTEMS AND THE APPLICATION OF DIGITAL COMPUTER EQUIPMENT. IT IS THAT QUESTION TO WHICH THIS ARTICLE IS ADDRESSED. THE STATE-OF-THE-ART OF TRAFFIC SIGNAL SYSTEM OPERATION IS SUCH THAT THE ESTABLISHMENT OF WARRANTS FOR UTILIZATION OF SPECIFIC TYPES OF SIGNAL SYSTEMS IS NOT PRESENTLY FEASIBLE. HOWEVER, FOR A GIVEN SITUATION, AN ANALYSIS WHICH CONSIDERS ALL QUALITATIVE FACTORS, COSTS AND CAPABILITIES OF THE VARIOUS SYSTEMS CAN PROVIDE A LOGICAL BASIS FOR SYSTEM DETERMINATION. /AUTHOR/
