Traffic Signals are the control system to improve intersection operations, capacity, and junction safety.
The course module provides a detailed process of Traffic Signal Design. It also covers the key aspects of signal phasing, signal timing, etc.
The course will open a new window for students to consider Traffic Signal Designer role as a career opportunity.
The first module explained the reason for providing traffic signals at junction. then it covers traffic signal terminologies such as storage lane, acceleration lane, splitter islands, pedestrian refuge area, signal heads and their types, signal hoods, signal poles and their types.
The second module provided details of Traffic Signal Phasing, Signal Cycle Time and Right Turn Phasing. It also covers pedestrian phasing details and how to prepare and read traffic signal drawings.
The third module covers the concept of signal timing with respect to Pre-determined Fix Signal Timing and Actuated Signal Timing. It also covers the relationship of Cycle Length with Queuing and provides detail process of cycle Length Calculation. It covers the detail process of amber time calculation and provides Thumb rule recommendation for cycle length. Lastly, it covers key features to improve pedestrian crossing facilities by using latest technologies.
GCE Mentor is a group of Civil Engineering experts from the industry. Mentors prepare, compile the course content and review it before publishing. Several iteration and value addition takes place before publishing the course. It is vital for Mentors to not only make the course engaging but also provide important and advance information to GCE Students. We would encourage to GCE students to please share their feedback of every course module as they progress the course. Your valuable input will not only improve our current courses, it will also help us to understand Student’s perspective so that we can improve our upcoming course modules.
