The presentation will introduce the concept of adaptive signals and how they can be used to improve traveler mobility. The chronology of the project delivery process to design adaptive traffic signals on state highways in NJ will be outlined and discussed. Specific design elements such as image detectors, radar detectors, and roadside units will be examined. The presentation will conclude with examples of adaptive signal deployments in NJ.
