Coordinated Intelligent Transportation Systems Deployment in NYC (CIDNY) Task 5: Develop a Comprehensive Guide to Signal Timing, New Detection Technologies and Advanced Signal Timing Concepts Applicable in New York City

Investigator: Qing He

Funding Source: New York City Department of Transportation

Abstract: The defined scope of this Task is the development of a Guide to be used in-house by NYCDOT traffic engineers documenting all procedures on how to time and design signals, with a focus on traffic signal control principles, practices, and technologies. The research team proposes to produce such a guide in the first year of a multi-year undertaking now being proposed, and to focus later phases on the modernizing the basic principles that underlie such a Guide. The later phases will be defined in conjunction with NYCDOT during the first year.
