Queue Warning System

Smart Work Zone Solutions

As the most common component to almost all Smart Work Zone, the queue warning systems (Stopped Traffic Advisory System) informs drivers of the presence of downstream stop-and-go traffic based on real-time traffic detection. The system activates warning signs and flashing lights that alert drivers to expect emergency braking and reduce collisions.

How It Works – System Information

Queue Warning System reduces congestion by up to 80%, encouraging motorists to merge in advance of the work zone while maintaining steady forward progress.

Best used when temporary road construction calls for temporary safety protocols in steady traffic zones.

1

Analysis & Inform

Depending on the type of sensor used, Street Smart can determine the following information from vehicles: speeds, volume, classification, gap, occupancy, headway, etc. This information creates advanced warning messages upstream, alerting the traffic of conditions ahead.

Traffic Alerts

The changeable message and smart arrow boards provide real-time information to motorists alerting them that traffic is slow or stopped.

DEPLOYMENT CRITERIA CONSIDERATIONS

Z

Queue lengths are estimated to vary greatly, day-by-day and hour-by-hour, so a suitable location for the TTC advance-warning signage cannot be predicted. Note: The motorist typically forgets signs placed over a mile ahead of confirmation.

Z

Queue lengths may encroach upstream beyond a motorist’s reasonable expectations for stopped traffic, and there is the likelihood that the geometrics (terrain) may cause poor visibility of end-of-traffic queues, causing short reactions times and panic stops.

Z

Queues launched on crossroads are estimated to cause traffic conflicts and delays on the mainline road, such as back-ups beyond the length of ramps, through or around turns in intersections, or other hazardous congestion situations.

Anticipated System Effects

Queue Warning System can help reduce primary and secondary crashes by alerting drivers to congested conditions. Incident severity decreased because drivers prepare for impending congestion. Stopped Traffic Advisory Systems can also help delay the onset of congestion. With more uniform speeds, traffic flows more smoothly and efficiently.
