Paper Abstract

An important part of traffic management and intelligent transportation systems is the availability of cost effective, reliable sensors for vehicle classification and traffic flow monitoring. Fiber optic sensors have numerous advantages over conventional sensors and are thus prime candidates for use in these traffic systems. In this paper, an optical fiber vehicle sensor is described for axle detection. Results from field tests are presented. The performance of the fiber optic vehicle sensor is evaluated and methods of vehicle weight-in-motion are also discussed.
