Traffic control system Jason1080 , Lee 10803627d , Depart of PAED Summary This patent is a traffic control system which is used to collect information of the whole area, and give back the information of position and speed which is based on the whole traffic condition to the drivers. This system comprises a traffic control strip extending along a traffic l ane, detectors positioned at intervals within the traffic control strip, and processors at intervals within the traffic control strip.(as shown in the figure 2) This kind of structure is designed for controlling the illumination of a plurality within the traffic control strip, collecting readings from the vehicle detectors, and providing bidirectional communication with higher level traffic control compute. The traffic control strip is a clear strip of polycarbonate material which has a thickness of less than one-half of an inch affixed to the surface of said traffic lane, and the strip is recessed into the surface. Electrical and/or optical transmission lines extend through the traffic control strip so as to connect the plurality of luminants and the detectors with the processors, and such lines extend to roadside boxes where they connect to supervisory traffic control computers and power supplies. The traffic control strip has its plurality of luminants extending at spaced intervals along the traffic control strip. The detectors are positioned at spaced intervals along the traffic control strip for the purpose of detecting and optionally receiving signals from or transmitting signals to vehicles passing in proximity to the traffic control strip. The processor transmits a signal to the luminants so as to create a banded pattern in front of (relative to the direction of traffic flow) the vehicle location deduced from the signals received by the detectors. The traffic control strip extends near the center of the traffic lane, perhaps offset to be directly in front of the typical driver. Specifically, the traffic control strip is a clear strip of solid material affixed to the surface of the traffic lane. This clear strip is
