Real Time Arterial Performance Monitoring System

Principal Investigator(s):

Henry Liu, Former Professor, Civil, Environmental and Geo-Engineering

Project summary:

The primary purpose of this project was to implement a low-cost system that could accurately estimate arterial travel times (suitable for public traveler information systems) with only minor revisions to the Minnesota Department of Transportation's standard detection layout. The secondary goal of the project was to provide accurate mainline turning movement counts and minor street approach counts at a level accurate enough for traffic analysis and signal timing work.
