The communications system protocol including polling rate, polling sequence, data message format, and bit transmission rate shall guarantee that traffic signal timing plans generated and/or implemented by the central computer shall have a maximum granularity of one second. That is, phase durations, interval durations, cycle lengths, and offsets shall be designated and commanded in increments of one second. The communications system protocol shall also guarantee that the controller phasing indication on the wall map (mimic panel) located in the central control room shall be updated at a rate of once per second. Actuations sensed by the local intersection traffic signal vehicle actuation detectors are not required to be reported at the central control room. The local intersection traffic signal controllers shall be programmed such that any command issued from the communications system which is unrecognizable will be ignored. If successive commands are received which are unrecognizable, or if no commands are received over a prescribed duration of time, the controller shall automatically release itself from control of the computer and subsequently operate in the standalone, Time Based Coordination Mode. The local intersection traffic signal controllers shall also be programmed such that force-off commands issued from the communications system shall be ignored by the controller if the minimum green has not expired or if the controller is in a clearance sequence. All clearance intervals shall be timed and commanded by the local intersection controller in accordance with the clearance interval times (inter-green times) contained in memory of the controller. It shall not be possible to override the local controller clearance times through information received from the communications system. The Central Traffic Control Computer shall be programmed such that the receipt of erroneous controller status data, or the non receipt of data, from the data communications system for a prescribed period of time shall cause the Central Control Computer to automatically cease attempting to command the local intersection controller. Operator intervention shall be required to reattempt commanding the local controller under these circumstances. Placing a full-actuated, or semi-actuated, local intersection controller under Central Computer Control shall not disallow the actuation capability of the local controller. A cycle length shall be maintained through controlling the duration of time between issuances of successive yield commands. Phase durations at the local controller shall be governed by local vehicle actuations except when the maximum phase times allocated by the Central Traffic Control Computer are reached. Under these circumstances the central computer shall issue a force-off command to the local controller to be transmitted over the data communications system to advance the controller to the next phase. The communication equipment installed shall provide prompt, accurate, effective, and fail-safe communications among signals, local controllers, master controllers, Central Computer Control System components, and shall include cable, communications interface equipment and other such elements as shown on Construction Drawings, the Contractor's shop drawings, specified herein, directed by the Engineer and/or required for satisfactory operation of the Traffic Control System. All pull and junction boxes, and conduit shown on the Drawings shall be supplied and installed by the Employer separately. Due to limited space in the utility service reservations, no more than four, ten centimeter diameter, concrete encased PVC conduits will be available for the computer to controller communications link on any given conduit run. All communications must be accomplished using cables. Wireless radio signals are not permitted due to Government regulations. Voice communications from intersection to intersection, from intersections to artery master controllers, and from intersections and artery master controllers to the Central Computer Control System shall be provided as an integral part of the communications system. Wireless communications shall not be permitted.
