DEVELOPMENT OF INFRASTRUCTURE SENSOR FOR INFORMATION COLLECTION IN VEHICLE-ROADSIDE CONTROL SYSTEM

The vehicle-roadside control system is one of the major advanced road transportation systems that have been promoted by the Ministry of Construction in Japan. It is designed to support drivers in safe driving via continuous communication between vehicles and roadside equipment, that is, low-loss coaxial (LCX) lines. Thus, the system must grasp various incidents and events, such as traffic and road conditions that have occurred and are occurring or changing momentarily on roads. For this system, an image sensor is intended for use as an infrastructure sensor. This paper reports the results of experiments conducted by the Advanced Road Transportation Systems Research Society on the image sensor's capability to detect motions--like vehicle movements, falling rocks, and other objects--and outlines the configuration, positioning, and functions of the infrastructure sensors in the vehicle-roadside control system testing ground established in March 1995.
