GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEMS IN THE TIME DOMAIN: HOW USEFUL A TOOL FOR INTELLIGENT VEHICLE-HIGHWAY SYSTEMS?

This paper considers the use of the global positioning system (GPS) as one method for obtaining information on the position, speed and direction of travel of vehicles. It reports the results of a series of field studies, in which real-time GPS data were compared to data collected by an instrumented vehicle, in which real-time GPS data were compared to data collected by an instrumented vehicle, under a range of physical and traffic conditions. The field studies and consequent data analysis provide a picture of the reliability and usefulness of GPS data for traffic monitoring purposes, and hence the possibilities for the use of GPS in IVHS projects.
