Ticon Field Test Report

Updated: Dec 21, 2018

Summary


Multiple field test have proven that Ticon algorithm allows calculations of the traffic flow parameters, including traffic volumes, with an accuracy comparable with that of traffic detectors. Moreover, Ticon results do not suffer from hardware malfunctioning, installation problems and poor maintenance.


Methodology: Direct comparison of Ticon calculations with detectors’ measurements


Test sites:


Scale of the experiment


14,400 tests performed, including: – 3,024 with intervals averaging ten minutes; – 8,856 with intervals averaging one hour; – 2,520 with intervals averaging 24 hours.



Ticon data accuracy is equal or better than detectors’ one


Ticon Flow volume determination: Street


Ticon Flow volume determination: Avenue


Ticon Flow volume determination: Major city highway


Current flow volume determination (10-minutes average): Street


Regularity of traffic flow volume change (different days of week)



Regularity of traffic flow volume change (same days of different weeks)



Conclusions


  • Ticon algorithm allows calculations of the traffic flow parameters, including traffic volumes, with an accuracy comparable with that of traffic detectors.

  • Ticon algorithm ensures continuous accuracy because it does not suffer from hardware malfunctioning, installation problems and poor maintenance.

  • The average relative divergence between detector data and the results of calculation by Ticon algorithm varies within 14- 24%, with larger values corresponding to the lesser GPS-data representativeness, usually noted on small streets.

  • Direct measurements of traffic flow volumes with the help of video surveillance have shown Ticon accuracy of up to 95%.


Ongoing experiments


Ticon improves every day. We test it continuously.
