VEHICLE DETECTION. PHASE III. PASSIVE BUS DETECTOR/INTERSECTION PRIORITY SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT. OPTION 1: EVALUATION AND FIELD TEST DEMONSTRATION

The Passive Bus Detector/Intersection Priority System developed under this project was evaluated in two U.S. cities. Two engineering models were installed; in Washington, D.C. (14th and C Street) and in Minneapolis, Minnesota (33rd Avenue and Johnson Street, N.E.). Each system was formally evaluated for a three-month period, during which all design goals were successfully met or exceeded. Classification accuracy of 95 percent to 97 percent was consistently reached with less than 1 percent false alarms. Benefit ratios ranged between 20 percent and 40 percent.
