Model Real-Time Highway Traffic Control Systems
The purpose of this project was to develop a microprocessor based hardware design that could automate ITS network configuration for differing modes of traffic controller operation. The design, called Controller Interconnection Network (CIN), is scalable. Up to 20 traffic controllers can be interconnected with a single network or in up to four parallel networks, permitting multimodal operation. The CIN enables communication between controllers and also allows users an interface to enter controller settings. The design allows remote control of some operations via a web-based interface.
