T3 Webinar: Traffic Signal Timing (Blended)
May 19 – June 28, 2017
Are you looking for a Traffic Signal Timing course that offers the flexibility and convenience of a web-based course, but also offers interaction with the instructor and fellow students? 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.
Length: 10-15 hours
