Adaptive Signal System
ITS LLC played an integral part in the implantation of the first adaptive signal system in the state of Louisiana.
Adaptive signal systems help to handle the influx of new drivers and to mitigate the traffic impact on the roadways. Communications are collected on a server at DOTD that runs algorithms to determine the amount of green time needed for each approach at each intersection, as well as the amount of time required to keep progression through the intersections. The new timings are instantly uploaded back to the controllers and are run with the next light cycle. The system continues this process, adapting to actual demand.
The new technologies involved in this project are in road magnetometers coupled with Advanced Transportation Controllers (ATC). ITS LLC is working with the manufacturer to ensure that the new detection systems will work effectively and efficiently as part of the adaptive system. ITS LLC is excited to be the first to design adaptive traffic signals for Louisiana, and we always strive to be the best in our field.
