Abstract

Speed and acceleration profiles under real world driving conditions are required as input to improved motor vehicle emissions models, and are being used for other environmental and fuel economy models. Accurate and representative measurements of these real word conditions are necessary for development of predictive and simulation models and to better understand and model driver behavior. Several new technologies allow for remote sensing of modal vehicle activity on the transportation network, each with its own set of advantages and limitations. This article discusses the methods of data collection and details the differences in measuring a small number of vehicles on the road for long distances versus measuring a large percentage of the traffic for a much shorter distance.
