Real-Time Arterial Performance Management System


Project Description


The objective of this project is to implement a low-cost system that can accurately estimate arterial travel times (suitable for public traveler information systems) with only minor revisions to Mn/DOT’s standard detection layout. The project will provide accurate mainline turning movement counts and minor street approach counts at a level accurate enough for traffic analysis and signal timing work.


This project will use the University of Minnesota developed technology that logs, at a high resolution, real-time intersection data. This data includes signal controller events and detector data. As an output, arterial performance measures such as travel time, queue length and progression quality can be estimated.
