The book’s goaNews-MariaBookl is to introduce traffic signal control systems to students in a way that is familiar.  The book allows students to learn the fundamental principles of a signalized intersection by focusing on the automobile while laying the foundation for future courses that focus on other users (pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit) and more advanced traffic control schemes, such as actuated control, coordinated signal systems, and adaptive control. Learning objectives are clearly stated at the beginning and end of each section. In addition, the book includes over 70 figures that illustrate basic concepts and over 50 computational problems and two field exercises that give students the chance to test their understanding of the material.
