Automatically Measuring Traffic Recovery Times After Snowstorms

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  09/01/2015

Summary:

Researchers used traffic data and an algorithm developed in previous research to create software that automatically determines how long it takes for a road to recover from a snow event. The data-determined normal condition regain time is potentially more accurate and requires less time to identify than the bare-lane regain time, the manually observed traditional recovery measure.
