  • Abstract:
    High quality sensing and control systems are essential for providing efficient signalized arterial operations. INDOT operates over 2600 traffic signal controllers, approximately 2000 of which use some form of vehicle detection. The private sector continues to develop innovative sensing technologies that may potentially benefit Indiana motorists and taxpayers by improving system efficiency and lowering installation and maintenance costs. However, the acceptance of new sensing technology requires careful evaluation because to ensure that they provide robust performance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with minimal impact on maintenance resources.

    This project was initiated with the objective of assisting INDOT with evaluating new sensing and control technology. As the project progressed, there were several opportunities to partner with colleagues at other agencies, institutions, and businesses to leverage collective resources and accelerate implementation on a national scale.
