Carlsbad traffic signals to become state-of-the-art

The intelligent transportation system, and its central computer and communications system, Traffic Management Center, are the nuts and bolts behind the technology. Bilse said the wireless connections between the controller at the traffic signal and its Traffic Management Center feed real time information to staff managing the signals. “The new software will send out an automated alarm when the controller senses a problem with the signal operations,” he said. “By performing this work in the Traffic Management Center, not only are travel times reduced but maintenance costs go down as well.”
