Abstract

Traffic counts from conductance loops embedded in the road surface of motorway networks are now being wired to local and distant processors. The loops generate a stream of volumes and velocities, classified by vehicle type and lane, at a large number of monitoring stations on the network. Ways of exploiting this stochastic information, in particular for estimating current and predicting future travel times, are discussed.
