Default TrafficControl

Hi everyone!
I have a question about the sample model called "Highway Traffic". A "Traffic Control" object was used in this model?? I explore the "tree" and i could not find any object like this one.
So, I was wondering how the traffic merge into the ramps was controlled. Can I use the TrafficControl object to control this, simulating the red and green ligth effect?
I'll be waiting for an answer, thanks!

Fernando,

This model uses conveyors to move the flowitems through the model. If you look in the tree you will see two light objects ("SouthLight", "NorthLight"). They are queues that use their OnReset and OnMessage triggers to control the conveyors connected to their center ports.

I know that I have done some things to use network nodes to control the flow of traffic in a model. If you look at the mining demo models th open pit model an intersection that use a traffic controller. It behaves more like a stop sign than a light though.

I hope this helps,
Brandon

I saw the model that you told me. It will be useful for my model to represent those crosses that only have stop signals.Is there any kind of code (to use on the triggers)
that could help me to make the red and green light effect? I mean, some way to stop the traffic for a few seconds, using the TrafficControl object.
