MOTORWAY SURVEILLANCE AND CONTROL

Details are given of the experimental surveillance project on about 42 miles of freeway in Los Angeles. All 42 miles are eight-lane or ten-lane freeways, and the highest traffic volume in the system reaches 200,000 cars per day. The project is intended to provide information as to whether intensive surveillance of a motorway can be used to provide aid to motorists. The computer controlled ramp-signalling system and the processing of the information obtained from the surveillance are described.
