Detection Field Testing Grant uri icon



  • ITD relies on vehicle detection to operate their signalized intersections. The operation’s quality is very closely tied to detection accuracy. If a detector misses detecting a vehicle the green light may prematurely terminate or no green is given. If a detector falsely detects a vehicle then the traffic controller waste time serving a direction of traffic when no traffic is there. ITD personnel frequently experience maintenance issues related to failing detectors and this project aims to minimize this.
