Project detail
Project Description:   Software for the integration of loop sensor data with signal phase and timing (SPaT) and GrID (MAP) data via data fusion.
Goals:   The Inductive Loop Vehicle Sensor Data can be augmented with signal phase and timing (SPaT) and GrID (MAP) via Data Fusion to improve signal timing and reduce system induced delay.
Test Methodology:   Simulation
Expected Benefits:   Improved traffic operations, reduced air pollution.
Project Findings:   Phase I determined that this can be done. This phase II project will attempt to conduct a demonstration of augmenting inductive loop sensor data with signal phase and timing (SPaT) and GrID (MAP) via Data Fusion.
