2252 - Development of Inexpensive Vehicle Sensor Node System for Volume, Turn Movement and Collision Avoidance - Phase 3

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) is responsible for collecting temporary vehicle counts from thousands of various locations throughout the state each year. As a continuance of Phase 2 of this study, the purpose of Phase 3 of this study is to develop and implement a non-intrusive, inexpensive, portable vehicular traffic monitoring system for temporary installment on the surface of highways, roadways, or roadsides. Sensor design is comprised of solid-state electronics for detecting, counting, and classifying vehicles while eliminating inherent limitations of systems fabricated with loops and hoses. Utilization of the proposed design can be extended to improve work zone safety by reducing installation time and providing real-time traffic monitoring. The system can be integrated with other networks, such as inter-vehicle communication and road-to-vehicle communication for enhancing traffic safety control at intersections
