The measurement of speed, journey time and queue status on non SCOOT controlled links

Cherrett, T.J., Bell, H. and McDonald, M. (1995) The measurement of speed, journey time and queue status on non SCOOT controlled links At IEE Colloquium on Urban Congestion Management, United Kingdom. (doi:10.1049/ic:19951297).

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

The main aim of the paper is to describe a method used to determine journey times, speeds and queue status using VHS camcorders at 12 positions along a four lane urban carriageway in Southampton. The information collected was used to validate other calculations of link journey time and delay made using single loop detectors fitted along the same stretch of road
