Ride the Green Wave: How Big Data and Traffic Signals Analytics are Helping America Go Green by Saving Time, Fuel, and Lowering Carbon Emissions

When: Tuesday, November 30, 2021 -- 1:30 - 3:00 PM ET

This webinar is sponsored by INRIX.          

Webinar Description:

Vehicular traffic is a leading cause of unnecessary delay, fuel use, and their resulting emissions. Recent studies suggest traffic signals account for over 20% of delay on the National Highway System. Historically, traffic engineers have relied on scheduled maintenance to adjust and retime these signals. Connected vehicle data have enabled new scalable solutions to prioritize and improve traffic signal performance, with no need for added infrastructure costs. This webinar will present an approach to leverage these connected vehicle data to identify opportunities to improve traffic signal timing. Case studies from Washington County, OR, along with others from around the country, will be presented and the impacts of these studies will be characterized using both traffic signal performance measures and “green” metrics.

Learning Objectives:
Attendees of this webinar will be able to:

  • Understand how connected vehicle data can be used to derive valuable insights related to traffic signal performance.
  • Evaluate traffic signal performance using connected vehicle data at the movement, intersection, corridor, and regional level
  • Recognize the relationship between well-operated traffic signals and time, fuel, and emissions savings
  • Interpret case studies using this technology to identify and improve traffic signal timing issues
