Speed is one of many factors that increase the risk of serious or fatal injury in traffic crashes. Understanding driver and road manager decisions regarding travel speeds is fundamental to improving traffic safety. The objective of this study was to test existing equipment and technology assets in monitoring...

 

Video detection systems have replaced the industry's standard inductive loops because they are easy to install, have flexible applications and their maintenance is cost-effective. These systems involve positioning cameras above traffic to capture images of passing vehicle. These images are analyzed by...

 
Detector Technology Evaluation (Nov 2003, MPC-03-154)

This paper evaluates detector technologies under a variety of criteria and provides user guidelines for detector technology selection. Information for the project came from applications of detector technologies, detector technology development, user manuals about specific detector devices, detector field-testing...

 

This research examines a range of incident detection technologies to determine a recommended combination of approaches for use in the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS). The technologies that were examined are computer-based Automatic Incident Detection...

 
Inclement Weather Signal Timings (Jul 2000, MPC-01-120)

This study examines signal timing in inclement weather conditions. With the completion of the Utah DOT's Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS), UDOT will have the capability to change signal timing plans from a central location by communicating with each controller through fiber optic technology....

 

This study compares the performance of left-turn phasing to provide quantifiable benefits of one phasing over another. From the analysis, guidelines are developed for determining the type of left-turn phasing based on left-turn volume, opposing through volume and lane geometry.
