A REVIEW OF THE TRAFFIC FLOW PROCESS

This paper summarizes the results of Wardrop, Edie, Haight, Breiman, and others in the study of space and time distributions of speed and other traffic characteristics. In order to help the traffic engineer properly assess mean speeds and other traffic characteristics, the underlying methodology is clarified and its application illustrated by examples of real-life situations. Such applications involve data from manual counts, several types of detectors, and aerial photography.
