|Project Name:||Data Mining and Gap Analysis for Weather Responsive Traffic Management Studies|
|Start Date:||July 1, 2009|
|End Date:||December 31, 2010|
|Office:||Office of Operations Research and Development|
|Team:||Trans Ops Concepts and Analysis Team [HRDO-20]|
|Project Description:||An important lesson learned from weather responsive traffic management studies carried out so far is the lack of relevant and sufficient traffic and weather data available for the analysis. Hence, a task that will look into the issues related to traffic and inclement weather data was added. The objectives are: (1) Conduct a comprehensive search and documentation of traffic and weather data in the United States and abroad that could be used for weather responsive traffic management studies.(2) Establish contacts with organizations that have suitable traffic data on inclement weather, and determine procedures/requirements to obtain these data.(3) Identify critical gaps regarding the collection and processing of traffic data on inclement weather conditions.(4) Recommend strategies and generate guidelines for gathering and processing data that will be used in weather responsive traffic management studies.|
The key project objectives are to:
(1) Search and gather available traffic and weather data for weather responsive traffic management studies.
(2) Identify gaps on the collection and processing of traffic data on inclement weather conditions.
(3) Recommend strategies for gathering data that will be used in weather responsive traffic management studies.
