Traffic Control Boxes to Help Road Monitoring

...ppened. On average, the controller boxes in this simulation sent fewer than 10 signals a day -- 200 times less than they would normally send. The engineers also looked at dozens of detector stations over an entire month. Even using fewer than 10 signals a day, the software was able to accurately calculate t...
