Abstract:

In Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Project 0-5507, Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) researchers developed and field-tested an enhanced version of a platoon identification and accommodation (PIA) system developed in an earlier research project. A key feature of the PIA-2 system developed in Project 0-5507 was its ability to detect and progress platoons in both arterial directions. The objective of this implementation project was to install the PIA-2 system at two additional locations in Texas. This report documents the work performed in this implementation project.
