DEVELOPMENT OF A METHOD FOR DETERMINING NUMBERS OF VEHICLES ON THE FEDERAL MOTORWAY A3

ENTWICKLUNG EINES STEUERUNGSVERFAHRENS ZUR ABLEITUNG VON FAHRZEUGKOLLEKTIVEN DER BAB A 3

IN THE SUMMER OF 1976 MEASUREMENTS WERE CARRIED OUT ON THE MOTORWAYS A3, A48, A61, A65, A59, A1 AND THE L122 AT KERPEN. TRAFFIC VOLUMES AND IN SOME CASES DESTINATIONS WERE DETERMINED. MEASUREMENTS WERE MADE ON 5 WEEKENDS UP TO NOVEMBER 1976, AND FURTHER MEASUREMENTS ARE TO FOLLOW. THE MEASUREMENTS SHOWED THAT THE CAPACITY OF THE A61 IN THE REGION OF AHRWEILER IS INSUFFICIENT. THE NEXT STAGE OF THE WORK IS TO BE CONCERNED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT AND PROGRAMMING OF A CONTROL MODEL.
