PTV Vissim TSP/Preemption
Web-Based Training

Date: April 21, 2021 

Time: 10:00 am - 2:00 pm (PST)

Location: Online

Short Description 

In this half-day course you will learn and apply the principles of a Ring-Barrier Controllers Transit Signal Priority and Preemption methods; learning how to place the necessary network objects (detectors and signal heads) as well as how to program the logic into an existing PTV Vissim network.

Transit Signal Priority (TSP) provides additional green timing within a cycle to a specific phase when activated to reduce delay for that movement if the conditions are right. Preemption shuts down an intersection to allow a specific movement to traverse the intersection unimpeded.


Vissim Introduction or equivalent experience generating microsimulation network models. Basic knowledge or experience in ring-barrier signal control logic preferred.
