Development of Low Voltage/Extended Runtime Signalized Intersection Using Backup Power after the Loss of Utility Power Due to Hurricanes

The primary objective of this research is to improve safety and efficiency at signalized intersections during utility power loss after hurricanes. This project will investigate the best methods for developing an extended runtime signalized intersection that would operate for a minimum of 5 days using backup power.
