In-Road Microwave System for Traffic Monitoring and Vehicle Identification (2016–2019)

With the ever increasing number of vehicles on our roads, conventional approaches to traffic management have become less effective and prohibitively expensive. This project aims to develop a cost-effective, in-road microwave radar system for traffic monitoring and vehicle identification. The system integrates chip-enabled license plate technology with novel microwave radar techniques to produce real-time data that supports immediate intervention for improved road safety, vehicle identification and driver validation. In addition, the system will provide uniquely rich data, from multiple sensors, to improve traffic management decisions, road infrastructure planning and operation.
