Real-time offset tuning can provide an almost optimal operation while capitalizing on the existing knowledge and familiarity of traffic engineers and personnel with the current actuated control system. The real-time offset tuning concept was introduced several years ago by one of the authors of this paper. Advantages and disadvantages of the concept were discussed in subsequent papers. The concept was taken further for implementation by other researchers within the ACS Lite tactical-level architecture development. This paper describes a parallel effort that focuses more on (a) a robust classification algorithm of progression quality and remedies and (b) vendor-independent distributed implementation architecture for the proposed algorithm. Rather than immediate implementation issues, this research establishes a flexible development framework for theoretical development and experimentation of adaptive control algorithms in the context of closed-loop systems operation.
