Project Details

Project Description: 

This project builds on phase 1 of the Multimodal Intelligent Traffic Signal System (MMITSS) development effort, which conducted the foundational analysis and design necessary to prepare for the development and field testing/demonstration of MMITSS.  This project will conduct system and software development that will result in field implementation and testing of MMITSS.  Multimodal Intelligent Traffic Signal System (MMITSS) is a comprehensive traffic signal system taking advantage of the connected vehicle environment for multiple transportation modes, including general passenger vehicles, transit, emergency vehicles, freight vehicles, and pedestrians. The Multimodal Intelligent Traffic Signal System incorporates, at a minimum, the following arterial traffic signal applications identified by the Dynamic Mobility Application (DMA) program of the U.S. Department of Transportation: Intelligent Traffic Signal System, Transit Signal Priority, Mobile Accessible Pedestrian Signal System, Emergency Vehicle Preemption, and Freight Signal Priority.

Goals:

This project is a continuation of the Multimodal Intelligent Traffic Signal System (MMITSS) development effort. The objective is to conduct system and software development effort that will result in an actual real-time field implementation for testing and verification of the requirements and estimation of the performance.
