Registered author(s):

    This project describes a new set of advanced traffic surveillance techniques that are based on inductive vehicle waveforms and pattern recognition technology. Focus is on demonstrating and evaluating a new method for obtaining true selection related performance measures, such as section travel time and section density, for freeways. The report also discusses methods for the measurement of lane-by-lane traffic movement and specific origin/destination demands.
