Locating Active Sensors on Traffic Networks
Sensors are used to monitor traffic in networks. For example, in transportation networks, they may be used to measure traffic volumes on given arcs and paths of the network. This paper refers to an active sensor when it reads identifications of vehicles, including their routes in the network, that the vehicles actively provide when they use the network. On the other hand, the conventional inductance loop detectors are passive sensors that mostly count vehicles at points in a network to obtain traffic volumes (e.g., vehicles per hour) on a lane or road of the network. This paper introduces a new set of network location problems that determine where to locate active sensors in order to monitor or manage particular classes of identified traffic streams. In particular, it focuses on the development of two generic locational decision models for active sensors, which seek to answer these questions: (1) "How many and where should such sensors be located to obtain sufficient information o...
