CMU, Cranberry to team on traffic data, technology

“[The traffic signals] don’t have enough brains. It seems like they should, but they don’t,” said Duane McKee, Cranberry assistant township manager. Change is on the horizon, though, and Cranberry’s state-of-the-art traffic data collection systems will play a role. Cranberry is entering into an agreement with Carnegie Mellon University to further the efforts of the Traffic21 project, a university-wide research initiative aimed at integrating technology into public transportation projects.
