Real-Time Monitoring Unit of Traffic Flow


Article Preview

With the sustained growth of vehicle ownerships, traffic congestion has become obstacle of urban development. In addition to developing public transport and accelerating the construction of rail transit, use scientific managing and controlling method in real-time monitoring traffic flow to divert the traffic stream is an effective way to solve urban traffic problems. In this paper, cross-correlation algorithm is used to obtain real-time traffic information, such as capacity and occupancy of a lane, so as to control traffic lights intelligently.
