APPLICATION OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES TO TRAFFIC DATA COLLECTION AND MANAGEMENT

The paper describes a third generation video tracking system capable of extensive wide area traffic measurements. Advantages of the data association tracking system employed in the Mobilizer are discussed. Different components of the Mobilizer are described along with the system architecture for specific applications for traffic data collection and management. System capabilities are discussed in reference to measurement of traffic characteristics such as speed, density, headways, vehicle classification and/or other derived information as travel time over a defined segment of roadway. Mobilizer can provide icon displays to monitor flow conditions at a glance or video snapshots for incident management. Preliminary results areincluded from one application and the stage of implementation is described for another. Co-ordination effort needed in establishing telecommunications for a project and merging of an evolving technology with the existinginfrastructure is discussed.
