Maricopa County, after a successful pilot project for traffic signal technology, is continuing their plan to use smart tech to improve street safety and reduce traffic times. The technology, labeled adaptive signal control technology or ASCT, is designed to read traffic conditions in real-time via sensors to adjust the timing of traffic signals.
