Small Business Innovation Research: 3-66 Signal Transition Logic--Phase II

This research project will implement the National Cooperative Highway Research Program research 3-66 signal transition logic into a real-world, advanced transportation controller (ATC). Signal transition logic utilizes dynamic programming algorithms to choose the next series of signal states to arrive in a desired state to minimize both delay and other criteria when faced with unusual traffic sensor inputs such as trains, fire trucks, police, ambulances, funeral processions, and tractor trailers. Current technologies only allow non-optimal processing of these items as preempts.
