T3 Webinars are brought to you by the ITS Professional Capacity Building Program (ITS PCB) at the U.S. Department of Transportation's (USDOT) ITS Joint Program Office, Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA)


Slide 1:  The Future of Software-in-the-Loop Simulation Training and Research

Tom Urbanik
The University of Tennessee

Slide 2:  Traffic Signal Objectives

Slide 3:  System Based Priority Control

Slide 4:  In The Old Days ...

[There is a picture of traffic control hardware located on a telephone pole.]

Slide 5:  Today ...

[There are three pictures. One picture shows people in the field observing a traffic control mechanism. The other pictures are of the hardware of traffic control mechanisms.]

Slide 6:  So What?

Slide 7:  So What (II)?

Slide 8:  What Have We Learned From MOST?

[Screen shot of an example of Mobile Signal Timing Training displaying a traffic simulation using ASC/3. The screenshot includes two separate side by side windows, and the status screens of the ASC/3 controllers, from two separate simulations.]

Slide 9:  What’s Left to be Done?

[One map of the U.S. indicating the locations of labs, education, and training for traffic control signaling. The red stars indicate the locations.]

Slide 10:  The Future

Slide 11:  Questions?
