Field Evaluation of Smart Sensor Vehicle Detectors at Intersections & RR Crossings

The detection performance of two smart sensors (Wavetronix and one other company) will be studied to determine the potential errors on such measure of effectiveness as missed calls, false calls, stuck on calls and dropped calls. The potential errors will then be verified by human observers. The sensors will be installed at an existing test bed in Rantoul that has been used for evaluation of other sensors. The railroad site to be studied is in Chicago area.
