<p>To improve safety and efficiency on high-speed signalized intersections a dilemma zone protection system has been designed to automatically configure site-specific protection boundaries on both main-street approaches by continously tracking vehicles within up to 1000 feet of each stop line.&nbsp; The system will further customize and refine protection by continously estimating the probability of a severe or a minor conflict for each vehicle, based upon its changing speed and position.&nbsp; The system will also automatically adjust signal timing based upon a marginal costs-benefits framework that compares the benefits of prolonging protection to the costs of competing demand.&nbsp; To provide traffic professionals a simple way to evaluate operational effectiveness, the system will automatically generate and report performance measures and health status.&nbsp; To ensure a large installation base the system is designed with a scalable architecture that allows for integration of up to two or more advance warning signals on each approach.&nbsp; The placement and timing of advance warning signals is designed to increase the clarity and authority of signalization.&nbsp; And for rapid acceptance and wide deployment the system is designed with commercial off-the-shelf technologies that integrate with all standard controllers and work within the confines of free or coordinated operations.</p>
