Abstract

The project aims to investigate and develop techniques and systems for automatic incident detection (AID) and traffic monitoring in urban and extra-urban areas. Information on the state of road traffic is derived from urban traffic control systems, motorway sensors, dynamic route guidance systems, image processing techniques, in-vehicle equipment and knowledge-based systems. Strategies are developed for the detection of incidents, and are compared in terms of internal and external requirements and restrictions, effectiveness of performance, implementation costs, and development timescales. A multimodel approach to AID is recommended where the model used to detect incidents is selected from a group of algorithms on the basis of premium effectiveness.
