VPL Project’09: An Integrated Station for Vehicles’ Operating Conditions Survey

The study of relationships between characteristics of infrastructure and road user behavior cannot be accomplished exclusively by means of laboratory work, so real data acquisition becomes necessary. This research is finalized to realize a survey device, the VPL station, specifically designed to measure and store the operating parameters (speed, position and length) of transiting vehicles on sections of rural roads. The hiding techniques used for VPL station installation make it undetectable by users, so modifications in driving behavior are prevented. These solutions and the used technologies make the VPL station a useful tool available to the analysts for rapid surveys.
