Performance Measures for Traffic Signal Systems

Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) seeks assistance to define performance measures that can be introduced into system specifications that will allow MDOT to measure the performance of its traffic signal systems. Data is continuously being collected along signalized corridors in the way of travel times (via Bluetooth readers) and traffic volumes. However, there is a need to be able to convert this big data into useful information. These performance measures, as monitored in periodically generated reports for certain periods of the day, will give indication of system deficiencies and failures which will allow MDOT to be proactive in addressing these issues and ultimately improve signal system operations.
