Adaptive Signal Control Technology
The RTC, together with the City of Henderson and Clark County, launched a smart adaptive traffic signal pilot program in Southern Nevada, along 14 intersections on Eastern Avenue between Beckler Drive and Pebble Road.
Instead of using traditionally timed traffic signals, adaptive signal control technology (ASCT) was deployed to determine if it can help make traffic signals more efficient and improve performance metrics, potentially resulting in:
- reduced traffic delays and congestion
- improved travel time reliability
- decreased vehicle emissions
- improved safety
Unlike traditionally timed traffic signals, signals with ASCT are supposed to react to changing traffic conditions caused by special events, road construction, and other roadway incidents to provide the best solutions to traffic signal phasing based in real time.
