Part of: Microcomputer Applications in Transportation III


This paper describes the development of the Interactive Videodisc Training (IVT) system and a training course on work zone traffic control. The IVT system uses a microcomputer-controlled videodisc player to provide individualized, interactive instruction to the student. A 4- to 6-hour training course, depending on the student, on work zone traffic control was developed. This course can be used to train engineers or technicians in the proper procedures for selecting, installing, inspecting, and removing traffic control devices in work zones.
