Study on efficiency improvement of traffic census

Study period:1998 - 2003
Research overview:
Nation wide roads and streets traffic status census (road traffic census) of general traffic volume census, which investigates spot traffic volume and speed of cars in every 2 or 3 years, is scheduled in a weekday and a holiday in the autumn for most likely representative of annual average traffic. So it does respond necessarily to neither the status of specific variation characteristics of the local traffic such as tourist resorts, nor time sequential variation of traffic. This study intends to improve such situation for higher efficiency and advancement of road traffic census with, (1) traffic volume census using simple measurement apparatus, and (2) traffic activity study using the positioning information system such as car navigation system, and investigates possibility of continuous data collection and its possible application to road traffic census.
