SELECTION OF VEHICLE DETECTORS FOR TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT

This article examines the practical requirements for vehicle detectors for use in traffic signal systems on the basis of the control philosophy developed in an earlier article (by Hulscher and Sims, published in the November 1974 issue of Traffic Engineering & Control). It is shown that only two types of commercially-available detectors are capable of meeting the set requirements, but the level of service still needs improvement. Whilst the performance of electronic circuits can be improved by application of modern techniques, certain basic areas deserve further research. /Author/TRRL/
