Algorithmic Traffic Flow Incident and Congestion Detection

Different early incident detection protocols (MARZ, California, HIOCC …) can be implemented to avoid incident situations and reduce consequences in case of incidents. Data from the traffic counters and classifiers (which could be of any type from microwave to inductive loops) have been gathered and are being processed through algorithms to provide early incident information or information on traffic levels.

Incident detection is based on the principle that an incident is likely to cause a significant increase in upstream occupancy while simultaneously reducing occupancy downstream.
