His passion for intelligent transportation systems drew him to the Transit Engineering/SFgo group, where he has worked extensively on the planning and implementation of various technologies to improve transportation in San Francisco, such as transit signal priority (TSP). In the past year, Edward has worked to retime over 200 traffic signals to optimize TSP for light rail vehicles and buses. In addition, he has had the opportunity to work closely with the SFMTA’s Cable Car Division to optimize signal timing and preemption for cable cars.
