Bluetooth Data Collection System for Planning and Arterial Management

This report presents the results of a research and development project of an implementable portable wireless traffic data collection system. Utilizing Bluetooth wireless technology as a platform, portable battery powered data collection units housed in traffic barrels were developed. The use of these units is for short term data collection (normally up to one week) and can be deployed for travel time data collection, origin-destination study data collection, and intersection performance data collection. After design and development of the units, they were deployed in real applications of travel time data collection, origin-destination study data collection, and intersection performance data collection. The different applications are described in the report. A web-based application for processing the collected data was also developed. The report includes a user’s guide for the data collection units as well as a user’s guide for the web-based application.
