DescriptionBeginning with descriptions of parameters that characterize the flow of vehicles on freeways, arterial roads and feeder routes, this hands-on manual examines intrusive and non-intrusive traffic sensors and associated technologies that measure traffic flow and assist in the management of congestion. It contains information about sensors that provide wider coverage areas and a larger variety of traffic flow parameters than the more conventional inductive loops. The operating characteristics of these measuring devices is illuminated through detailed discussions of traffic-responsive arterial signal control, freeway incident detection, ramp metering, electronic toll and traffic management, commercial vehicle operations, advanced traveller information systems, and sensor installation and maintenance issues.
About AuthorLawrence A. Klein, Ph.D. is currently a private consultant and was commended by the U.S. Federal Highway Administration for his performance while with the Hughes Aircraft Company as principal investigator on the Detection Technology for Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems program.
