Abstract

Wireless communication technology has been introduced in the field of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) in the past decades, and its applicability has been widely expending. Feasibility of the IR-DSRC based vehicle detection systems in measuring vehicle speed was tested as a possible alternative of the conventional inductive loop based systems requiring high construction and maintenance cost. It was found from the field test that the speed data from the IR-DSRC detection systems were statistically identical to the ones from the loop based systems at 95% confidence level.
