Vehicle Reidentification Using Inductive Loops in Urban Areas

Travel time information is of vital importance for traffic management and monitoring purposes. This information can be acquired by using reidentification on inductive loop profiles, which is cheaper than expensive cameras registering the license plate numbers. Until now, most research has focused on the motorways where double loops are mostly present. This paper presents an algorithm suitable for urban areas with various sizes of single loops. Validation tests showed reidentification rates up to 100% when matching loops of the same type and 88% when matching between different types. Introducing a likelihood border reduced the amount of false positives below 2%.
