There are approximately 68 million instances per day of signal change to yellow phase at high speed isolated intersections where an erroneous decision to stop or go can often lead to a crash. Dilemma zone protection systems are typically used to control these intersections to ensure safe and efficient movement of vehicles. However, the traditional dilemma zone protection systems show deterioration in performance during medium to heavy volume condition, thus jeopardizing both safety and efficiency of the intersection.87 5.11 An example of undesired performance of the WAD for tracking northbound probe vehicle (Dodge Dakota) on June 29, 2007. ....................... 88 5.12 An example of undesired performance of the WAD for tracking southbound probe vehicle (Dodge Dakota) on June 29, 2007. ... of vehicles arriving and departing the WAD detector zone during green (using WAD data with no manual filtering).
