Many California cities have started using the Type 2070 Advanced Traffic Controller (2070 ATC), which is also used for advanced transportation system applications. This hands-on course provides working knowledge about the capabilities, uses, and operations of the Type 2070 controller, as well as how to program signal timing plans into the controller. The course covers all key topics ranging from controller hardware, module options, diagnostic tools, field applications of the 2070 ATC, implementation issues, to how to upgrade from Type 170 or NEMA controllers. The course combines lectures with classroom exercises, case-studies, and hands-on controller labs.
