Abstract

Traffic management systems help to organise the more and more dense traffic in cities. However, the classic approach for such systems is the use of traffic models, which incorporate a long-term knowledge of traffic situations in the respective city. This approach is not adequate for reacting to changes in traffic, either long-term changes, which have not been trained to the model, or short-term changes due to unexpected events. In this paper, we describe how we collect real-time traffic data using a laser scanner, evaluate the precision of the traffic measurements and assess the circumstances under which the results are useable for a professional traffic management system.
