Descripton

Traffic detectors describe the computerized field control systems located at signalized intersections that run the red-yellow-green lights on traffic signal systems. Most jurisdictions and ODOT use both video and vehicle detection to help with real-time signal timing once their entire signal systems have been upgraded. 

This element also includes local traffic controllers.
