Assessing Traffic Performance using Position Density of Sparse FCD

Publikation: Beitrag in Buch oder TagungsbandVortrag mit Beitrag in TagungsbandBegutachtung


We present an approach for evaluating traffic performance along corridors and its variation based on floating car data (FCD). In contrast to existing work, our approach can cope with long and irregular FCD reporting intervals. Resampling of sparse FCD in time and interpolation increases spatial resolution of FCD positions along the corridors. FCD position density is computed with a uniform kernel, which leads to traffic performance expressed as average travel time per meter and average speed. Experimental results based on real-world FCD for a freeway section and arterial roads in Vienna illustrate the plausibility of the approach, and an example illustrating our approach before and after a traffic influencing measure shows its advantage over using dedicated probe vehicle runs, temporary sensor installations or human observers. A sensitivity analysis provides guidelines for the important parameters.
