Concepts & State of the Art Practice – Free Course
What you’ll learn
- They will be able to understand basics of traffic engineering – how can we study road traffic and how we can design the signals to handle the traffic
- Proficiency in arithmetics is required
- Knowledge of statistics will be helpful
- Knowledge of programming will be helpful
Ever wonder how engineers handle traffic? This course will take you to the concepts behind traffic signals. It will explain you how vehicles are allowed to travel in different direction simultaneously at an intersection as well as how timings are allocated to each of the movement.
We will also discuss how traffic data is collected in the field using aerial photography and stationary observer. We will discuss theoretical formulation of traffic flow equation and its application to real world problems. I will also share state of the art practice to operate and manage traffic signals. This course serves as a good guide for practitioners and students.
