ITE has entered into a partnership with the the Consortium for Innovative Transportation Education at the University of Maryland (CITE) to offer CITE course registration through the ITE Learning Hub. ITE Members receive a discount on all CITE courses, Professional Development Bundles, and Certificate Programs by registering through ITE.
This ITE and Consortium for Innovative Transportation Education Blended Learning Course begins Thursday, March 24, 2022. Registration closes at 12 pm ET, March 18, or once we reach course capacity.
When: March 24 - May 1, 2022 (ET)
This course provides students with an understanding of both the theory and practice of traffic signal timing and its impact on traffic operations. It gives students an overview of the terms associated with signal timing; discusses the concepts of cycle length, split, offset, midblock friction, phase sequences, the signal timing process, and signal timing optimization; and looks at the types of actuated controllers, passage time, extension, and the coordination of actuated and pretimed controllers. It also discusses the development of timing plans, explores types of signal control (first generation control and advanced techniques, including Rhodes, RT-TRACS, SCAT, and SCOOT) and investigates the relationship of signal timing to ITS: regional and system/design considerations.
The course will focus on instructor facilitated participant discussion to provide a practical understanding that you can use to further develop your knowledge. There is a mixture of on-line material, engaging case studies, plus the opportunity to share your experiences with your classmates.
Instructor: Kevin Lee | Kittelson and Associates
