Toronto has a very long history of computerized traffic signal control, dating back to the 1950's. It may have been the second such system in the world, modeled after the first one installed in London England after World War 2. Interestingly, the main traffic computer used to be in what is now Yonge Station on the Sheppard Subway line, it was moved when the Sheppard subway was built. There is also an interesting connection between the current main traffic computer system and the new Blackberry 10.
