ATSAC (LAミニミニ大作戦の技術)

[Japanese]
ミニミニ大作戦で使用されていた、信号を操る技術(ATSAC)。どうやら、LAでそれが普及しているみたいだ。効率のよいトラフィックは渋滞を少なくして、燃費効率がよくなれば、環境にも良くなる。

面白いことに、オペレーションセンターは市役所の地下4階で運用されている。なんか、話がCTU(24)の世界見たいになってきている。たぶん、ジャックがあんなにLAの中をすいすい移動できるのはATSACのおかげなのかな?

おもしろいテクノロジーだ。

[English]
“Recently featured in the movie “The Italian Job,” ATSAC is Los Angeles’s computer-based traffic signal control system that monitors traffic conditions and system performance, selects appropriate signal timing (control) strategies, and performs equipment diagnostics and alert functions. Sensors in the street detect the passage of vehicles, vehicle speed, and the level of congestion. This information is received on a second-by-second (real-time) basis and is analyzed on a minute-by-minute basis at the ATSAC Operations Center, located four floors below the street in the City Hall, to determine if better traffic flow can be achieved by changing the signal timing. ”

I got this news from UCI’s newsletter. Didn’t know such new technology is getting implimented. I’m sure this thing will help out some of the traffic jam, but systems always have some kind of bugs. What if the bird poops on to the camera/sensor and affects the info feeded into the system. Worst traffic jam will happen…

I know LA drivers though. I’m sure people will start ignoring the traffic lights and stuff. Therefore, if the system breaks, there will be no issue.
