A proposed system for the collection and recording of traffic volume data from continuous counting stations

The system described consists of two sections. The first or field section collects traffic volume data from up to eight parallel lanes. The data are serialized and transmitted via pmg lines to the second or central processing section located in the office where it is counted, coded and recorded on punched tape. The central processor unit will accept data from up to 1800 field stations although the design at present is such that ten have been planned for. Once the data have been recorded on the punch tape, the tape can be used to give a teleprinter readout or be fed to a computer to investigate trends in traffic growth, time distribution of traffic flows and the preparation of flow maps (a).
