Part of: Microcomputer Applications in Transportation III
Abstract: Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) has traditionally been the domain of powerful and expensive computers. Personal computer technology, however, is rapidly changing this trend by: making PCs available at a fraction of the cost of large computers, continuously improving their computational power and speed, and creating software that is simple to use. This paper discusses the application of PC technology coupled with CADD software to the design of traffic signal installations, provides guidelines to implementation of that technology, and identifies the hardware and software requirements necessary for that implementation.
