Travel Speed Estimation Method for Arterial Road Based on Spot Traffic Parameter

In order to utilize the available spot traffic parameter data obtained by the loop detectors, and estimate the average travel speed of the arterial road accurately and quickly by regression analysis of the relationship between spot and interval traffic parameters, two estimation methods were proposed, then verified by the traffic simulation means. The results show that the model significantly outperforms the competitor. The model based on modulus coefficient effectively improves estimation effect of single model and has higher estimation accuracy under traffic congestion.
