City of Columbus Traffic Detectors




Traffic detectors describe the computerized field control systems located at most signalized intersections that run the red–yellow–green lights on traffic signal systems. The City of Columbus plans to use both video and inductive loop detection to help with real–time signal timing once its entire signal system has been upgraded.
