This project will provide field proven results for which traffic detection products satisfy ITD needs. Idaho relies on vehicle detection to operate their signalized intersection. The operationâ€™s quality is very closely tied to detection accuracy. Recommended statewide standards for traffic detection systems will aid in the assessment of alternate detection products.
The objectives of this project are:
Conducting a systematic assessment of the detection accuracy of selected commercially-available traffic detection systems.
Developing recommended standards that ITD could use when procuring traffic detection systems.
