A TECHNIQUE FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF TRAFFIC PARAMETERS IN ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES

MEASUREMENTS OF TRAFFIC PARAMETERS WERE MADE USING TIME LAPSE PHOTOGRAPHY. A PROGRAM WAS WRITTEN TO COMPUTE FOR EACH VEHICLE 7 DESCRIPTIVE PARAMETERS: GROUND ORDINATE; VEHICLE TRAVEL; SPACING OR HEADWAY; TIME HEADWAY; STREAM SPEED; FLOW; AND CONCENTRATION OR SPACING. THE ANALYSIS OF THESE MOVEMENTS CAN BE USED TO IDENTIFY ASSOCIATED EFFECTS, PARTICULARLY IN ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES, AND IS ALSO USEFUL IN STUDIES OF VEHICLE BEHAVIOR AT INTERSECTIONS. /HSL/
