Stereo Vision Onboard a Vehicle for Obstacle Detection
We show how two linear cameras, mounted behind the windscreen of a car, can be used to detect the obstacles on the road in real time, even with small computer architectures. Results of...

Automatic Object Identification in Road
The methodology for automatic object recognition in real road traffic environment is presented. The proposed data acquisition methods have been tested on site. In addition, the fundamental...

Stereo Vision with Scan-Line Cameras for Intrusion Detection on L.R.T. Tracks
In this paper we present a new method for the detection of intrusions by means of stereo vision in order to infer 3D information from two linear sensors. This method can be used for security...

Design and Evaluation of Multi-Band Progression Schemes
Multiband is a new arterial progression scheme that has the capability to assign each directional road section with an individually volume-weighted band. The method offers to the traffic...

A Catastrophe Theory Approach to Freeway Incident Detection
This paper discusses an approach to incident detection on freeways that classifies traffic conditions at a single station rather than by comparing conditions at adjacent stations. The...

A Low Pass Filter for Incident Detection
A new algorithm for automatic incident detection was developed after observing that existing algorithm performance can improve if detector data are filtered before use. The new algorithm...

Automatic Incident Detection Using Image Processing Techniques: A Specific System Used in INVAID
INRETS together with other partners, within the European DRIVE program framework is working on developing a system able to detect incidents on motorway by processing video images (Jref....

A Distributed Real Time Knowledge-Based System Using Video Image Processing for Junctions Automatic Incident Detection
The scope of the INVAID project (in the European DRIVE program) is to build an automatic incident detection system which incorporate the image processing capabilities. In the urban aspects...

Minnesota Department of Transportation Experience in the Application of Advanced Traffic Management Systems
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) began deploying Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS) in the early 70's. The Interstate 35W just south of the Minneapolis...

Identify the Marina User Market and Make the Customer a Part of the Planning Team: Designing and Managing for the User's Needs

The number of so-called marinas and yacht harbours in Japan is said to be as many as 1,000 at present. In this report, the findings of a survey on 365 marinas which appear to satisfy the...

Burns Waterways—Boat Capacity Study
The results of a boat capacity study for the Burns Waterway located in the city of Portage, Indiana, close to the southern tip of Lake Michigan are presented. More than 650 recreational...

Runway Roughness Measurement, Quantification and Application: The Boeing Approach
The measurement of runway roughness and the determination of the severity of runway roughness have long been the subject of nebulous discussion and esoteric description. By considering...

Results of the 1989 ASCE Airfield Pavement Survey
In November of 1989, the American Society of Civil Engineers Airfield Pavement Committee sent out questionnaires to airfield pavement engineers across the country to assess the most recent...

Right-of-Way Surveying
This manual, Right-of-Way Surveying Guide (Manual no. 75), is a revision and up-date of the Guide to Right of Way Survey Practices, published...
