A team at The University of Alabama is working to modernize traffic lights to become smarter and communicate with vehicles passing through. Changes are needed, they say, to improve the flow of traffic because congested areas have no other option.

In 1837, The University of Alabama became one of the first five universities in the nation to offer engineering classes. Today, UA’s College of Engineering has more than 5,800 students and more than 150 faculty. In recent years, students in the College have been named USA Today All-USA College Academic Team members, Goldwater, Hollings, Portz, Boren, Mitchell and Truman scholars.
