Real-Time Linux Operating System for Advanced Traffic Controllers

The purpose of this project is to connect the Linux real-time operating system to advanced transportation controllers. This will provide the support necessary for faster detector polling and information processing, which is required for CICAS and vehicle-infrastructure integration (VII) research. Phase I and II are complete. A draft final report for Phase II is under review. Phase III will develop a version of the software suitable for on street use by traffic signal vendors. The software is undergoing lab test in Los Angeles. After completion of lab testing, the field-testing phase will begin. An initiative for transfer of the technology to the signal vendors was planned but currently is unfunded.
