From Inductance Loops to Vehicle Trajectories

This paper describes ongoing work on the United Kingdom’s M42 motorway which has a uniquely high coverage of inductance loop detectors. The spacing of detectors is sufficiently small for one to use individual vehicle data to follow single vehicles down the highway. The paper gives a brief outline of the data collection work and sketches how the vehicle re-identification algorithms work.
