Effects of and future plans for MPD Traffic Control System / Traffic Data Collection and Analysis functions

The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department (abbreviated as MPD) has installed 12,000 vehicle detectors and infrared beacons at 1,800 locations along 2,800 km of main routes in its area of control for the purpose of understanding the traffic conditions in the Tokyo Metropolitan Area. The data collected by these roadside terminals are processed and analyzed by the central computer of the Traffic Control System to be used for traffic signal control, information provisioning and planning of traffic control measures. In order to enhance the performance of traffic signal control and information provision, it is important to improve the algorithm to be used by these terminals, given that the understanding of traffic conditions on roads, or measured data, are correct. This paper focuses on the collection and analysis function for the traffic data, which serves as the basic information for the Traffic Control System and its history of advancement.
