A Summary of Vehicle Detection and Surveillance Technologies use in Intelligent Transportation Systems

Chapter 4 - In-roadway Sensor Technologies

In-roadway sensors are those requiring installation on, embedded in, or installation below the road surface. The pneumatic road tube, inductive loop detector, magnetic sensors, piezoelectric cable, and weigh-in-motion sensors (piezoelectric, bending plate, load cell, and capacitance mat) are examples of in-roadway sensors, which are discussed in the following sections.

PNEUMATIC ROAD TUBE

Principles of Operation

Pneumatic road tube sensors send a burst of air pressure along a rubber tube when a vehicle's tires pass over the tube. The pressure pulse closes an air switch, producing an electrical signal that is transmitted to a counter or analysis software. The pneumatic road tube sensor is portable, using lead-acid, gel, or other rechargeable batteries as a power source.

Applications and Uses

The road tube is installed perpendicular to the traffic flow direction and is commonly used for short-term traffic counting, vehicle classification by axle count and spacing, planning, and research studies. Some models gather data to calculate vehicle gaps, intersection stop delay, stop sign delay, saturation flow rate, spot speed as a function of vehicle class, and travel time when the counter is utilized in conjunction with a vehicle transmission sensor (JAMAR Technologies).

Advantages

Advantages of road tube sensors are quick installation for permanent and temporary recording of data and low power usage. Road tube sensors are usually low cost and simple to maintain. Sensor manufacturers often supply software packages to assist with data analysis.

Disadvantages

Disadvantages include inaccurate axle counting when truck and bus volumes are high, temperature sensitivity of the air switch, and cut tubes from vandalism and truck tire wear.

Installation Configuration

Figure 2 shows some of the road tube configurations utilized on single and multilane highways to count and classify vehicles. Figure 3 displays the front panel of the JAMAR TRAX-III counter, which indicates how data analysis parameters are selected to match the tube layout.

INDUCTIVE LOOP DETECTORS

The inductive loop detector (ILD) is the most common sensor used in traffic management applications. Its size and shape vary, including the 5-ft by 5-ft or 6-ft by 6-ft square loops, 6-ft diameter round loops, and rectangular configurations having a 6-ft width and variable length ( Klein , et al., 2006). Figure 4 shows the principal components of an inductive loop detector: one or more turns of insulated wire buried in a shallow sawcut in the roadway, a lead-in cable that runs from a roadside pull box to the controller cabinet, and an electronics unit located in the controller cabinet.

schematic drawing

Figure 4. Principal components of an inductive loop detector installation.

Principles of Operation

The wire loop is excited with signals whose frequencies range from 10 KHz to 50 KHz and above. The loop functions as an inductive element in conjunction with the electronics unit. When a vehicle stops on or passes over the loop, the inductance of the loop is decreased. The decreased inductance increases the oscillation frequency and causes the electronics unit to send a pulse to the controller, indicating the presence or passage of a vehicle.

Applications and Uses

The data supplied by conventional inductive loop detectors are vehicle passage, presence, count, and occupancy. Although loops cannot directly measure speed, speed can be determined using a two-loop speed trap or a single loop detector and an algorithm whose inputs are loop length, average vehicle length, time over the detector, and number of vehicles counted. Vehicle classification is supported by newer versions of the inductive loop containing electronics units that excite the wire loop at the higher frequencies that identify specific metal portions under the vehicle.

Advantages

The operation of inductive loop sensors is well understood and their application for providing basic traffic parameters (volume, presence, occupancy, speed, headway, and gap) represents a mature technology. As was the case with the pneumatic road tube, the equipment cost of inductive loop sensors may be low when compared to over-roadway sensors. Another advantage of inductive loop sensors is their suitability for a large variety of applications due to their flexible design.

Disadvantages

The drawbacks of inductive loop detectors include disruption of traffic for installation and repair, and failures associated with installations in poor road surfaces and use of substandard installation procedures. In addition, resurfacing of roadways and utility repair can also create the need to reinstall these types of sensors. The wire loops are also subject to the stresses of traffic and temperature. Therefore, installation and maintenance costs significantly increase the life-cycle cost of inductive loop detectors. In many instances multiple detectors are required to instrument a location.

PRODUCT NAME/MODEL NUMBER: Traffic Data Logger (TDL-500)

FIRMWARE VERSION/CHIP NO.: N/A

SOFTWARE VERSION NO.: N/A

GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF EQUIPMENT: TDL-500 is used with inductive loops and capacitive weight sensors to provide high speed Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) data.

SENSOR TECHNOLOGY AND CONFIGURATION: 2 inductive loops and 1 capacitive weight sensor per lane; up to 4 lanes monitored.

SENSOR INSTALLATION: In the portable set-up, stick-on inductive loops and the Series 8 capacitive weight sensor are placed on top of the road pavement. This method allows for a cost-effective solution to monitor axle loading on all paved roads not covered by permanent sites. Typically data for one week are collected and processed. In this way many different sites can be monitored. TRUVELO also offers the Series 9 capacitive weight sensors placed in stainless steel pans, flush mounted with the pavement, to monitor axle loading on permanent sites. The Series 9 weight sensor can be replaced by a "Dummy" and moved to another site.

INSTALLATION TIME (Per Lane ): Temp: 15 min

Perm : 2 hr/lane

INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS: N/A

MAXIMUM NUMBER OF LANES MONITORED SIMULTANEOUSLY: 4 lanes

PRODUCT CAPABILITIES/FUNCTIONS: The road sensors consist of two inductive loops and one capacitive weight sensor per lane to cover a maximum of four traffic lanes. The TDL-500 combines the sensor information into a default data string consisting of vehicle number, arrival date and time, gap time, lane number, travel direction, vehicle straddling present, trailer present, vehicle chassis height, vehicle speed, vehicle length, vehicle class, number of axles, axle weight, axle distance, equivalent standard axle load, weight violations and bridge overloading. Data are stored into battery backed-up RAM of 512 kB to 8MB, space for 34000 to 650000 individual vehicle data strings. The operator can decide which data are to be stored, in what sequence and use logical AND/OR combinations of above parameters, e.g., all class 9 vehicles exceeding a certain speed AND a certain weight AND a certain length will be stored in individual data format, directly printed or sent to the computer. Certain operator selected data can be grouped per time interval into bins to maximize available memory space. The standard vehicle classification format is the American FHWA, but like all other parameters, is operator programmable. AND/OR combinations of number of axles, axle weight, axle distance, wheel base, gross vehicle mass, vehicle length, chassis height and trailer presence can be used to create virtually any classification scheme.

RECOMMENDED APPLICATIONS: Vehicle classification.

POWER REQUIREMENTS (watts/amps): 6 volt internal battery (rechargeable from 12 volt battery, commercial power, or solar energy)

POWER OPTIONS: See above

CLASSIFICATION ALGORITHMS: Vehicle pattern recognition used to provide outputs according to American FHWA classification scheme.
