Wireless and Distributed Intelligent Signal Heads
The traditional traffic signal system with central traffic controller cabled to all signal heads can be replaced by intelligent („smart”) signal heads realizing a wireless and distributed traffic signal control.
- Instead of a central traffic controller the built-in logics of the signal heads provide the safe distributed operation for traffic signal control via wifi network.
- The power supply is ensured by solar cells.
- Main advantages: no substructures construction and cable need, cost efficient system and operation.
- Main elements of the test system: Siemens PLC, Arduino, Matlab and Siemens LED signal heads.
- The built test platform for system testing:
