Safety and Efficiency Benefits of Implementing Adaptive Signal Control Technology in Illinois

The Request for Proposal (RFP) for this study states that "The objective of the research is to measure the increase in the safety of signalized arterial systems by observing Adaptive Signal Control Technology (ASCT) as a technology to improve the safety of traffic signal systems. The research could also benefit the State of Illinois by promoting the use of ASCT for signal systems through quantifying and documenting efficiency improvements in traffic flow. Traffic signal personnel would also benefit through training on how to operate and maintain an ASCT system." It seems to indicate that there is one primary (safety benefits) and two secondary objectives for this study (efficiency improvements, and test bed for training). To achieve the objectives the following research plan is developed.
