Study on microscopic traffic flow data collection system based on video technologies

Modern sensing theories and technologies should have the potentialities to collect complete microscopic traffic flow data, including individual vehicle properties, location and movement properties of vehicle series crossing the section or area of view. Microscopic traffic flow data are essential for capacity analysis, intelligent traffic control, abnormal traffic state recognition, microscopic traffic flow characteristics study, macroscopic traffic phenomenon understanding, Experimental Traffic Engineering (ETE)development, etc. Video detection technologies are significant for microscopic traffic flow data collection and study. This paper systematically analyzes microscopic traffic flow data and gives the description models, according to which the section and area video detection technologies that were developed are introduced.
