Public Safety Traffic Signal Preemption has been around for over 40 years and in that time it has served the industry well. But in today’s world of connected traffic signal control systems for advancements in Transportation Systems Maintenance and Operations and Connected and Automated Vehicle technology systems, agencies must look for advanced systems to meet these new user needs. Due to advances in wireless technologies, increased GPS polling rates, Center to Center Traffic Signal Prioritization systems can utilize Cloud overlays to existing systems. With these cloud overlay systems, API calls between Automated Vehicle Location Systems, and Advance Transportation Management Systems can provide safer, more efficient, and more equitable solutions for all surface transportation users. All of this can be accomplished without compromising public safety and still enable reduced response times for public safety.
