AUTOMATIC PASSENGER COUNTING IN THE HIGH OCCUPANCY VEHICLE (HOV) LANES

The gathering of usage statistics in high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes is mandated by the Federal Highway Administration. These statistics are crucial for construction planning. Currently, the gathering of data is performed manually. This is obviously laborious inefficient, and prone to error. Under a Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) contract we undertook a study to determine if the automatic counting of passengers is feasible. In the present paper we report our findings regarding the appropriate sensor phenomenology and arrangement for the task and our plans for the future
