Mobile (Hands-On Traffic) Signal Timing Training (MOST)

Status: Complete

NIATT Project No.: KLK261 (Full Project Description)

Research Area: Center for Traffic Operations and Control

Funding Source: Federal Highway Administration

Principal Investigators: Michael Kyte, Ph.D., Professor, Civil & Environmental Engineering; Michael Dixon, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Civil & Environmental Engineering; Ahmed Abdel-Rahim, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Civil & Environmental Engineering

Project Abstract: This project involves developing, implementing and testing a portable training course for traffic signal timing, including equipment, training materials and educated instructors. Mobile (hands-on) signal timing training is training that will provide the skills and competencies needed by transportation engineers, technicians, and university students to use traffic data, existing traffic signal equipment, software programs, and resource material to determine and establish signal phasing and timing of individual installations of all types and systems of multiple signal installations for effective, efficient, and safe traffic control.
