Systems Engineering for Signal Systems Including Adaptive Control is a two-day course aimed to assist transportation professionals to identify the needs for improved traffic operations and utilize systems engineering principles for the implementation of traffic signal operational improvements. This course will provide traffic operations managers and personnel a comprehensive view of what is required before, during, and after the implementation of a new traffic control system. Adaptive signal control is used as the example throughout the course.
The overall goal of this course is to assist traffic operations staff in identifying traffic control system objectives and needs to facilitate planning, designing and implementing a new traffic control system. The FHWA document, Model Systems Engineering Documents for Adaptive Signal Control Technology (ASCT) Systems, (FHWA-HOP-11-027) is used for the exercises of this course.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Gather information needed for systems engineering process
Evaluate and resolve constraints
Assemble a concept of operations
Document verification and validation process
Develop a procurement strategy
Assemble a systems engineering analysis
Describe the systems engineering process
Professionals responsible for the planning, design, management or operation of traffic signal systems. This includes engineers, and technicians (advanced) of state/local agencies, consultants, and FHWA Operations staff.
