Study on the method of freeway incident detection using wireless positioning terminal
Hu, Rufu, Li, Chuanzhi, He, Jie, Hang, Wen, & Tao, Xiangli (2008) Study on the method of freeway incident detection using wireless positioning terminal. In Proceedings of : 2008 International Conference of Chinese Logistics and Transportation Professionals, 31 July - 3 August, 2008, Chengdu, China.
Improving the performance of a incident detection system was essential to minimize the effect of incidents. A new method of incident detection was brought forward in this paper based on an in-car terminal which consisted of GPS module, GSM module and control module as well as some optional parts such as airbag sensors, mobile phone positioning system (MPPS) module, etc. When a driver or vehicle discovered the freeway incident and initiated an alarm report the incident location information located by GPS, MPPS or both would be automatically send to a transport management center (TMC), then the TMC would confirm the accident with a closed-circuit television (CCTV) or other approaches. In this method, detection rate (DR), time to detect (TTD) and false alarm rate (FAR) were more important performance targets. Finally, some feasible means such as management mode, education mode and suitable accident confirming approaches had been put forward to improve these targets.
