AUTOMATIC NETWORK TRAVEL TIME MEASUREMENT SYSTEM - ANTTS . 15TH ARRB CONFERENCE, DARWIN, NORTHERN TERRITORY, 26-31 AUGUST 1990; PROCEEDINGS PARTS 1 TO 7

The road network represents a massive investment. Information on the performance of this network is vital to those planning, maintaining, managing and developing the network. One of the most important parameters which affects network performance is travel time. The present methods used for collection of travel time information are too costly to provide an adequate picture of travel times within a whole network. A system of travel time measurement is required which gives quantitative data over all routes in the network for all days of the week and all times of the day. A system for collecting travel time data using the SCATS communication network and automatic vehicle identification technology has been developed by the Roads and Traffic Authority NSW. A pilot system installed on an arterial road in Sydney has demonstrated the feasibility of the system and a system covering the whole metropolitan area is proposed. Possible future developments include use in rural areas and limited two-way communication between vehicles and traffic signal controllers. (Author/TRRL)
