Evaluation of Wireless Detection Systems at RR Crossings & Signalized Intersections

The performance the wireless vehicle detection system (Sensys brand) under variety of traffic and environmental conditions is evaluated. The evaluation is based on measure of effectiveness such as missed calls, false calls, stuck on calls, and dropped calls. Two intersections will be instrumented for data collection. The testing criteria and conditions will be decided. Field data at the two instrumented intersections will be collected and analyzed to determine the performance of the new detectors.
