TRAFFIC SIGNAL CONTROLLER FUNCTIONALITY COURSE CURRICULUM

Traffic Signal Priority Course

Course Lessons

Quick Access - TS Priority Course Lessons

COURSE OVERVIEW

Traffic Signal Priority (TSP) is now a key strategy in transportation for the efficient and safe movement of public transit, commercial goods, and other roadway transports. These leasons..

  • Providing in-depth understanding of how traffic signal priority functions and how it can be used to improve the movement of specific classes of vehicles
  • Gain a deep understanding of TSP principles, strategies through a combination of theoretical instruction, and practical demonstrations

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Understand the fundamentals and objectives of Traffic Signal Priority (TSP)
  • Learn about different types of TSP systems, their components, and operational modes.
  • Explore the benefits and challenges of TSP implementation.
  • Understand the integration of TSP with existing transit operations and traffic management infrastructure.
  • Learn strategies for optimizing TSP performance, mitigating conflicts, and ensuring equitable distribution of priority.
  • Discuss emerging technologies and future trends in TSP, including connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs).

COURSE LESSONS

Lesson 1: Introduction to Traffic Signal Priority (TSP)

  • Definition, objectives, and benefits of TSP
  • Overview of TSP strategies and operational concepts
  • Historical context and evolution of TSP

Lesson 2: Types and Components of TSP Systems

  • Different types of TSP modes (e.g., green extension, early green, conditional priority)
  • Components of TSP systems (e.g., onboard equipment, roadside infrastructure, communication protocols)
  • Integration with transit vehicle technology and traffic signal controllers

Lesson 3: Planning and Design Considerations for TSP

  • Factors influencing the selection of TSP corridors and intersections.
  • Coordination with transit schedules, route planning, and passenger demand
  • Designing TSP strategies to optimize transit service reliability and efficiency.

Lesson 4: Operational Challenges

  • Conflicts between transit priority and other traffic movements
  • Monitoring and adjusting TSP parameters to adapt to changing traffic conditions.

Lesson 5: Simulation and Analysis Tools

  • Overview of TSP simulation software, modeling techniques, and performance metrics

Lesson 6: Emerging Technologies and Future Trends

  • Innovations in TSP technology, including predictive analytics, vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication, and adaptive signal control.
  • Potential impacts of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) on TSP operations and strategies

Traffic Signal Preemption Course

Course Lessons

Quick Access - TS Preemption Course Lessons

COURSE OVERVIEW

Traffic signal pre-emption is a critical aspect of traffic management systems. Its objectives are:

  • Provide for the safety of roadway uses at grade-level railway crossings
  • Allow emergency vehicles and other high priority vehicles to navigate traffic signals efficiently and safely

This training course is designed to equip traffic management, operations, and maintenance personnel with the knowledge necessary to implement and manage traffic signal pre-emption systems effectively.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Understand the principles and benefits of traffic signal pre-emption
  • Learn about the different types of pre-emption systems and their components
  • Highlight the legal and regulatory aspects of traffic signal pre-emption
  • Gain insight into the considerations for implementing pre-emption systems
  • Understand the operational challenges associated with pre-emption
  • Learn about emerging technologies and future trends in traffic signal pre-emption

COURSE LESSONS

Lesson 1: Introduction to Traffic Signal Pre-emption

  • Definition and purpose of traffic signal pre-emption
  • Historical context and evolution of pre-emption systems
  • Benefits and challenges of implementing pre-emption

Lesson 2: Types of Pre-emption Systems

  • Overview of vehicle pre-emption systems
  • Integration with traffic signal controllers and management systems

Lesson 3: Legal and Regulatory Considerations

  • Overview of liability issues

Lesson 4: Emerging Technologies and Future Trends

  • Innovations in pre-emption system technology

DELIVERY METHOD

  • In Class Room

TARGET AUDIENCE

  • Traffic Management Professionals
  • Traffic Consultants and Contractors involved in Traffic Signal Operations
  • Emergency Responders

DURATION
