DISAGGREGATION OF CROSS-LANE LOOP MEASUREMENTS OF OCCUPANCY

Inductive loops are the most popular devices for the collection of traffic measurements such as traffic volumes, occupancy rates or (in case of double-loops) mean speeds. Typically one loop per lane of carriageway is installed to enable the proper measurement of traffic variables. In some installations, however, the inductive loop covers two or more lanes, in which case the extraction of proper measurements becomes problematic. This note develops a simple probabilistic model that enables a more accurate estimation of occupancy rates from cross-lane inductive loop signals. (A)
