Nonmotorized Traffic Monitoring and Crash Analysis

This report documents the collaboration between ODOT and Bend MPO to develop and execute a nonmotorized traffic data collection program. Using automated technology and data processing techniques, this research demonstrates a least cost path to developing a nonmotorized traffic count program for a small urban community. Data processing techniques are developed to ease the burden of labor on staff through automatic data retrieval, processing and quality control using open source tools. The research also demonstrates how to utilize collected data for system wide monitoring using various data fusion techniques. Finally, these estimates of activity are used to demonstrate the disparate risk to nonmotorized users by performing crash analyses. The program and related elements in this report should highlight a nonmotorized data collection model for other urban areas to follow.
