LONO Bus Testing-The Ohio State University

It is extremely important to understand the transit system utilization and rider travel patterns to minimize transit costs and efficiently run the transit system. While the market is not short of stand-alone COTS APC sensors, there are still non-trivial challenges and issues existing both for accurate passenger counting and OD flow estimation. To address these challenges IAI team proposes to develop an integrated multi-sensor passenger detection system for both APC and OD traffic flow estimation. In a nutshell, the system collects APC data from multiple sensors, fuses them to create a better estimate of people in the vehicle, and then uses a WiFi/Bluetooth sensor and surveys to infer OD flows.
