Part 1: Detector Theory
Total Duration: 1:18:55
This training course on traffic detectors provides an understanding of how detectors work and the best methods to install, maintain, and repair them. The course is divided into four parts: detector theory, applications and evolution; detector design; detector installation; and detector maintenance. The training course introduces pressure, push button, magnetic, magnetometer, inductive loop, radar, sonic, radio frequency, and light emission detectors, with emphasis on loop detectors; for application at isolated intersections, in arterial or open network systems, in closed network systems, for area-wide system control, for preemption and priority vehicle control and pedestrian signal control; and in conjunction with pretimed, semi-actuated, fully-actuated and volume density controlled signal timing plans.
