Abstract

This paper suggests a methodology based on the image processing technique able to automatically calculate thevehicle traffic and its components (light vehicles, heavy vehicles and motorcycles). The method also allows to evaluateinstant vehicle speeds and, where necessary, to rebuild vehicle trajectories. Traffic data obtained through the proceduredescribed below (capacities and speeds) can be also usefully applied to estimate pollutant emissions from vehicle trafficper year; therefore, the suggested method employs the algorithms defined with CORINAIR procedures, implemented inCopert 4 software. In order to evaluate how effective is the methodology, an experiment has been carried out in a suburbanarea, more precisely in a motorway section approaching the International airport “Falcone e Borsellino” of Palermo inItaly.
