Research Institution
In this proposal, we have proposed a program for twenty months to build on the basic ideas and feasibility developed in Phase I of this SBIR in order to demonstrate the practical use of DSRC technologies with signal controller for adaptive timing with a goal towards commercialization. Specifically, we intend to further develop, build and integrate advanced signal control algorithms that make use of the SPAT and GrID/MAP in order to augment existing inductive loop vehicle sensor data to improve the performance of traffic controllers. We will test and simulate these results using various hardware in the loop methods and VISSIM to determine performance metrics. We will demonstrate this in a multi-intersection operational area during the program using multiple live DSRC equipped vehicles and controller devices.
