Shades of Green is an accessible introduction to traffic signal technology—its limitations and, more importantly, its potential. Traffic engineer and CEO of Rhythm Engineering, Dr. Reggie Chandra, reveals the truth behind common myths about red lights and lays out a “crash course” on traffic signal operations. Traffic signals have a profound impact on the environment and our safety on the road and Shades of Green explains how signal optimization can save lives as well as time and fuel. This book not only demonstrates how traffic signals work, but also provides a compelling solution to traffic troubles through signal coordination. Shades of Green presents the benefits of signal synchronization through an in-depth look at the InSync adaptive traffic control system and its results in the field.
