Transportation System Performance Measurement Using Existing Loop Infrastructure (102-FH2-005) SBIR Phase II

Project Information

Project ID: 
FHWA-PROJ-14-0003
Project Abstract: 

Phase II: Utilize loop amplifier electronics to analyze duration of pulses from existing inductive loops at a higher frequency to identify unique vehicles and facilitate identification and reidentification of these vehicles as sample probes passing over sequential inductive loop sensors.

Goals:

Evaluate whether it is possible to enhance existing loop sensor amplifiers to measure and track a subset of vehicles to create anonymous travel time and origin-destination information for a subset of the vehicle population.
