DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF MAXIMUM-CAR TECHNIQUE FOR MEASURING TRAVEL TIME

A TECHNIQUE IS DEVELOPED TO MEASURE TRAVEL TIME AND DELAY ALONG SECTIONS OF ROADWAY, WHICH APPEARS MORE VERSATILE THAN THE LICENSE-PLATE-MATCHING, AVERAGE-CAR, AND FLOATING-CAR METHODS. IT IS CALLED THE MAXIMUM-CAR TECHNIQUE WHICH GIVES A CONSTANT MEASURABLE CONSEQUENCE THAT IS STANDARD IN ANY GIVEN SET OF PHYSICAL CONDITIONS. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT THIS MAXIMUM-CAR METHOD CAN BE ADOPTED TO BEFORE AND AFTER CONGESTION STUDIES, TO ROUTE SELECTION AND ROADWAY GEOMETRY STUDIES AND MA NY MORE.
