Road Traffic Detection Using Wireless Noise Sensors
Source: University of Jordan
In this paper, the authors present their experimental result of using Wireless Noise Sensor Network (WNSN) to detect road traffic. With the features implemented in their network such as multipoint measuring, synchronization, real-time data availability, and strict compliance of Sound Level Meter (SLM) standard IEC 61672:2003, they assert the possibility of using WNSN to detect road traffic, such as vehicle amount, size, and velocity. This application can be extended and integrated as a part of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS).
