A Qualitative Assessment of the Lexington Automated Incident Detection System

The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government (LFUCG) Division of Traffic Engineering is deploying an Automated Incident Detection system to assist with the detection and identification of incidents in the Lexington area. Three different incident detection technologies are being deployed for this study. These technologies are acoustic, microwave/radar, and video detection. At least ten units of each type of technology will be deployed. In addition, GIS mapping will be merged with real-time incident and traffic-related information to display speeds, congestion levels and /or travel times on the LFUCG web site and television cable access channel. The Kentucky Transportation Center is conducting and independent evaluation and assessment of the system and will make recommendations for further deployment and evaluation.
