VEHICLE DETECTION, PHASE III: PASSIVE BUS DETECTOR/INTERSECTION PRIORITY SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT. OPTION II: MANUFACTURING DRAWINGS AND PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT. VOLUME I. OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL
General information regarding the installation, operation and maintenance of the Passive Bus Detector (PBD) is discussed. Installation and operation require no special adjustments except tuning the inductive-loop electronics to the loop and lead-in. When operated with a 6-ft x 6-ft loop, correct classification of mass transit (40-ft) busses should reach or exceed 95% with less than 1% false classification.
