2315 Adapting ODOT Radar Traffic Monitoring System to Automatically Track Real-Time Traffic Flow

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation is in the process of installing 150 radar sites across the State, with most radars deployed on major highways and roadways in the OKC and Tulsa metropolitan areas. The radar units monitor traffic flow and collect information including volume, speed, and vehicle classification. High resolution cameras are installed on the radar and can be configured to take a picture at regular intervals. This project is comprised of three major activities. First is to develop an interface to the radar data to allow real-time sharing of data and pictures with the Intelligent Transportation System group in ODOT Maintenance Division. The system will report speed information as well as pictures. Second is to compare the collected speed data with that obtained from commercial companies. Currently, the State spends large sum of funds to secure annual contract with such companies. Third is to investigate the use of speed data to rapidly detect roadway incidents.
