This book is designed for the module on signalized intersections as part of the introductory course in transportation engineering.
Learning About Signalized Intersections
Before they begin their university studies, most students have experience with traffic signals, as drivers, pedestrians and bicycle riders. One of the tasks of the introductory course in transportation engineering is to portray the traffic signal control system in a way that connects with these experiences. The challenge is to reveal the system in a simple enough way to allow the student “in the door,” but to include enough complexity so that this process of learning about signalized intersections is both challenging and rewarding.
This book presents a structured approach to the teaching and learning of the operation, analysis, and design of a signalized intersection for students in the introductory course in transportation engineering.
