In the reconstructed phase space, based on the nonlinear time series local prediction method and the relevance vector machine model, the local relevance vector machine prediction method was proposed in this paper, which was applied to predict the small scale traffic measurements data. The experiment results show that the local relevance vector machine prediction method could effectively predict the small scale traffic measurements data, the prediction error mainly concentrated on the vicinity of zero, and the prediction accuracy of the local relevance vector machine regression model was superior to that of the feedforward neural network optimized by PSO.
