When: Thursday, May 23, 2019 - Sunday, July 7, 2019 (ET)
Through a partnership with the Consortium for Innovative Transportation Education (CITE), ITE is pleased to offer our members discounted acces to this CITE this blended learning course.
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 pre-timed 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.
