This study focuses on information recovery from noisy traffic data and traffic state estimation. The main contributions of this paper are: i) a novel algorithm based on the compressed sensing theory is developed to recover traffic data with Gaussian measurement noise, partial data missing, and corrupted noise; ii) the accuracy of traffic state estimation (TSE) is improved by using Markov random field and total variation (TV) regularization, with introduction of smoothness prior; and iii) a recent TSE method is extended to handle traffic state variables with high dimension. Numerical experiments and field data are used to test performances of these proposed methods; consistent and satisfactory results are obtained.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
