ITE Journal - March 2020 - 21

ITEJ: As a traffic signal engineer, how does being an ITE member enhance your career, and
perhaps help you connect with other professionals in the industry you may not otherwise
be as integrated with?
GAULT: Since I first got involved with the local events committee of the Mid-Atlantic Section,
ITE has been instrumental in my career. I've made many friends through ITE events through
the years, especially at the local level, and it extends far beyond just professional networking.
My career growth wouldn't have happened without connections made through ITE. Being
involved in local committees and organizing events is a great way for industry peers to learn
who you are. In my current position, I frequently give presentations to the transportation
community. This type of public speaking is much easier and more relaxed by knowing the
audience, many of whom I have met over the years through ITE. itej

arena. After trying to collect data through a dial-up modem and closed loop system (which
crashed and sent signals to flash), I resorted to videotaping what the police were doing. It
turned out they were providing relatively consistent timing, so we just needed to program
the signal controller to detect the increasing traffic volume and provide similar timing as the
police were doing. The dynamic max feature of the controllers was used, and cleared out the
arena parking lot more quickly and without manual control.
	 More recently, we had a similar situation with a signalized ramp terminal leading to an
NCAA Division I football stadium, with police manually controlling the signal for a few hours
before game time. With the new technology, we were able to develop a better timing plan from
high-resolution data using ATSPM, watched the results with a CCTV camera, and didn't need
to travel to the intersection.
