Evaluation of Road Traffic Design Based on Multi-Source, Real-Time Data Collection

The rapid development of intelligent transportation has broken through the constraints of tradition with manual investigation as a main resource. On the basis of analyzing various data characteristics obtained through floating car data (FCD), radio-frequency identification (RFID), coil and video, the research concludes their applicability in road traffic design evaluation. This research resolves the association between traffic conditions and design through exploring the long-time, accumulated, multi-source, all-day-round, real-time data. Then, at the micro level, the evaluation method of elements including intersections, segments and bus station facilities in traffic design are studied employing multi-source data. On the basis of data analysis, the study examines the causes of traffic problems from the aspect of traffic design and supports decision on ameliorating design and management in transportation. In the end, data from a typical urban road is used as a case study.
