Treiterer’s Legacy: Traffic Flow Measurements and Characteristics

The highlights of contributions of the late Professor Joseph Treiterer to traffic flow theory, characteristics, data collection methods, platoon dispersion, and automated vehicle control are presented in this paper. Treiterer was a pioneer researcher and about 40 years ago tested the application of infrared radar for longitudinal control of vehicles on highways. His collection method for the trajectory data that captured the disturbance in traffic flow is still unmatched, after 35 years.
