Description of Paper:
Adaptive traffic control systems (ATCS) have become popular in recent years as the technology has improved and product vendors have made deployment and operations easier and more reliable. Unfortunately, the features and capabilities of ATCS are still misunderstood by many traffic engineers and system operators. The very term “adaptive control” is used to describe systems that may, in fact, provide measureable benefits over conventional fixed time or actuated control, but are not actually true adaptive control systems. This paper describes the widely accepted concept of “true” adaptive traffic control and compares how it is supported by several of the market leading vendors’ products.
