Title Expanding the City of Moscow Field Lab Data Collection Capabilities.
Publication Date Jul 2012

Personal Author A. Abdel-Rahim M. Dixon
Abstract The city of Moscow signal integration project, completed at the end of 2009, improved the citys traffic signal system by connecting the citys seventeen signalized intersections with a fiber optic network, upgrading the cabinets to TS2 Type 1 cabinets and the controllers to NEMA TS2 IP-based controllers, and installing centralized control software to manage the citys traffic signal system. As part of the project, NIATT traffic controller labs were connected to the citys traffic signal system through a direct fiber optic link to create a field lab environment capable of collecting real-time traffic operation data. As an expansion to the project, six of the citys seventeen intersections are equipped with closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras connected to the state communications system. In this project, we expanded the city of Moscows field lab data collection capabilities by instrumenting the intersections in the city to record high resolution signal and detector status data.
