Pooling Our Research: Loop-and Length-Based Vehicle Classification, Federal Highway Administration

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  11/29/2012


Investigators tested various length-based vehicle assessment methods with loops on Interstate 35 in Minnesota. Technologies for classifying vehicles by length can effectively supplement axle-based methods for assessing Average Daily Traffic and other traffic measures for use in planning and design activities. Such methods can also employ existing loop detectors and can be used in places where axle-based assessments are impractical.
