Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The goal is to acquire knowledge on the spot, group and line management and traffic coordination (green wave). They will gain practical experience in the central traffic control in selected cities and will deal with the issue of preferences into account public transport and traffic barrier-free buildings.

Summary

The course deals with complex issues of the system (central), traffic management, especially in larger agglomerations. Students will acquire knowledge on the spot, group and line management and traffic coordination (green wave). They will gain practical experience in the central traffic control in selected cities and will deal with the issue of preference of public transport.
