This article presents the results of a study on the development of improved incident detection algorithms for freeway surveillance systems. A total of 10 algorithms were defined, calibrated, tested, and evaluated. False alarm levels previously experienced with incident detection algorithms have been significantly reduced as a result of this new research. New algoirithm results are also presented relative to sensor configuration, geometric anomalies, and weather considerations.
