Task Description

The project will investigate methodologies for integrated application of ATSP and GPS/ACS (Global Position System and Advanced Communications Systems) to extend the capability of the existing GPS/ACS systems on BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) buses to include signal priority features, and to further develop ATPS algorithm to enable the traffic control system to better accommodate bus signal priority calls while minimizing the impact to the rest of the traffic and maintaining the coordination among signals.

Task Objective

The goal of this study is to close the gap between PATH current research on ATSP and its deployment.  The objectives are : 1) to investigate methodologies for integrated application of ATSP and GPS/ACS (Global Position System and Advanced Communications Systems) to extend the capability of the existing GPS/ACS systems on BRT buses to include signal priority features; 2)  to further develop ATPS algorithm to enable the traffic control system to better accommodate bus signal priority calls while minimizing the impact to the rest of the traffic and maintaining the coordination among signals.
