Original Article, Y. Wu et al., University of Arizona, August 3, 2021
Funded by the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC), this multi-university collaboration addressed the question from three angles:
- Wu and his students in Arizona looked at the impact of speed management strategies on conventional roadways.
- Yang and his team examined the effects of speed management strategies on connected corridors, coordinating with transit signal priority (TSP) systems.
- Kothuri and her PSU team came up with an approach to estimate pedestrian delay at signalized intersections.
The aim of their combined research efforts was to investigate the possibility of developing and implementing more innovative speed management strategies that are effective for multimodal transportation and can be applied in both conventional roadways and “connected” roadways – i.e. equipped with vehicle-to-infrastructure or infrastructure-to-infrastructure communication capabilities.
