Extracting More Information from the Existing Freeway Traffic Monitoring Infrastructure

This report presents the results of a study which focused on vehicle reidentification from conventional loop detectors. The study first extends the methodology across major merge and diverge freeway sections. It then extends this methodology to single loop detectors. The study also extends the understanding of traffic phenomena impacting both traffic flow and the performance of the reidentification algorithms. It examines the impacts of lane change maneuvers on delay and develops a model to capture these impacts.
