Utilization of Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) for Travel Time Data Collection

Travel times for the freeway systems in Houston, Texas are computed using information from automatic vehicle identification sensors which read Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags issued by the local tolling authority. Demonstrations were conducted to determine the feasibility of utilizing automated number plate recognition as an alternative to RFID readers for the determination of link travel times on an urban arterial where tag penetration of the overall traffic might not be as great as on freeways. This paper is the result of the demonstration with multiple vendor products.
