New SMART Signal installation helps MnDOT monitor timing plans

Researchers from the U of M recently developed a new version of software for the SMART Signal system, and deployments at more than 50 intersections managed by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) are already under way.
SMART Signal (Systematic Monitoring of Arterial Road and Traffic Signals) automatically collects and processes data from traffic signal controllers at multiple intersections. It then creates performance measures, including information on the times and locations congestion occurs on a roadway.
