  1. Traffic Detection Systems CEE 320Steve Muench

  2. Outline • What are traffic detectors? • Traffic detector importance • Detector types • Use Example

  3. What Are Traffic Detectors?

  4. Traffic Detection Systems Structure Detector Processor/Controller Storage

  5. Why Is Traffic Detection Important?

  6. Why Is Traffic Detection Important? Freeway Monitoring

  7. Why Is Traffic Detection Important? Actuated Signal Control

  8. Why Is Traffic Detection Important? Ramp Meter Control

  9. Why Is Traffic Detection Important? Road Discipline Enforcement

  10. Why Is Traffic Detection Important? Dynamic Traffic Assignment

  11. ATIS Why Is Traffic Detection Important? ! ! E-Message Sign Control Center Quality Data

  12. Traffic Detector Types • Inductive loops • Video • Microwave • Infrared • Acoustic • Radar • Magnetic • Radio frequency • Global positioning system (GPS)

  13. Share of Detector Types at new ATMS Sites

  14. Popular Traffic Detector Types Inductive loops Video Image Processors (VIPs)

  15. Popular Traffic Detector Types Remote Traffic Microwave Sensor (RTMS) Photos and picture from Electronic Integrated Systems, Inc.

  16. Popular Traffic Detector Types Magnetic Sensors Infrared Sensors

  17. Popular Traffic Detector Types Radio Frequency Tag

  18. Popular Traffic Detector Types ASIM TT 298: Doppler RADAR, ultrasonic, passive infrared. Volume, classification, speed, occupancy, queue detection, wrong-way

  19. Popular Traffic Detector Types ASIM TT 298: Doppler RADAR, ultrasonic, passive infrared.

  20. Popular Traffic Detector Types Intersection Control Traffic Data Acquisition = infrared (counting) = ultrasonic (vehicle height) = microwave doppler radar (speed)

  21. Popular Traffic Detector Types GPS-Based Tracking Systems

  22. Inductance Loop Detectors • Most popular Photos from Never Fail Loop Systems, Inc.

  23. Inductance Loop Detectors

  24. Inductance Loop Detectors • A Schematic Diagram • The inductance seen at the loop terminals is modified by the capacitance and results in an inductance which increases with increased operating frequency.

  25. Loop Detector Signatures

  26. Field Component Traffic Control Cabinet Pull Box Lead-In Cable Loop wires DEUs Inductance Loop Detectors

  27. Inductance Loop Detectors

  28. Inductance Loop Detectors Loop inductance decreases when a car is on top of it. Inductance T = ton 0 ton T = toff toff Time

  29. Inductance High low Tn tn1 tn2 tn3 Tn+1 Time Inductance Loop Detectors • Single loops can measure: • Occupancy (O): % of time loop is occupied per interval • Volume (N): vehicles per interval Single loop measurements?

  30. Dual Loop Detector • Formed by two consecutive single loop detectors placed a short distance apart ldist lloop

  31. Dual Loop Detectors • Dual loop measurements ldist lloop T = t2 T = t1 oti = on-time for loop detector i Measured vehicle lengths are used to classify vehicles into different categories, such as long and short.

  32. Only 20 sec aggregated data are available from TSMC TSMC queried 20 sec data (e.g. 0:00:00 3, 0.98 0:00:20 2, 0.65) measured data per 20 sec. real time measurements Loops Station cabinet User Inductance Loop Detectors

  33. Can We Get Speed from a Single Loop? • Perhaps… EVL ~ vehicle length + detector length

  34. Can We Get Speed from a Single Loop? • Using typical traffic data 100 converts percent to decimal

  35. Inductance Loop Detectors

  36. Video Image Processors

  37. Video Image Processors

  38. A Use Example: Ramp Metering
