Using Real-Time Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulation (HILS) to Develop, Test and Implement New Traffic Signal Timing Plans Grant uri icon



  • The goal of this project is to develop and implement procedures for using hardware-in-the-loop simulation, a more effective and realistic method to develop and test signal timing plans.

    Anticipated outcomes are

    • Training sessions and materials for ITD traffic staff to learn how to apply hardware-in-the-loop simulation (HILS) as part of their normal work routines, and a
    • Final report that provides guidelines for implementing HILS procedures.
