In Amsterdam a continuous test is carried out of selective vehicle detection at a junction using the so called vetag-test. The name vetag is derived from vehicle-tagging, which can be described as equipment for selective detection, identification and localization of vehicles. The vetag system consists of an interrogater, a detection loop and a transponder. A three-day comparative test was carried out, with the aid of a time recorder, by which the functioning of traffic with and without the priority principle was studied. The main purpose was to test the electronic possibilities of the vetag system. The conclusions are presented and discussed. /TRRL/
