For Traffic Signal Engineers and Technicians, it is often a challenge to test and validate Controller programs and visualize the results.
The many problems they face are:
- Configuring a physical test traffic cabinet to match the on-street configuration under test,
- Generating detector & preemption inputs to force Controller outcomes,
- Visualizing the Controller signal outputs in an easily recognized format, and
- Validating compatibility with the CMU configuration.
Today, their best option is bringing the actual physical cabinet to the lab with detector test switches installed (assuming loops) and connecting a generic display panel.
With intersection complexities growing, the problem will only get worse over time.
The ATC CyberCabinet software provides an Engineer with a software based solution to test and validate the functionality of an ATC Controller Unit (CU) database, without needing a full ATC5301, NEMA TS2, ITS Cabinet, or TEES 332 cabinet assembly in hardware.
This will produce higher quality results in less time, while reducing or eliminating the need for call-backs once the intersection is operating.
