Video Surveys

Video traffic surveys are best where accuracy requirements are high and the data gathered may be challenged.

Video surveys have an accuracy rate higher of at least 95% - higher than the typical accuracy of manual data collectors. Human collectors become fatigued, bored, and must pause for certain activities (e.g. breaks, distractions, etc). Additionally, a human data collector only has a few seconds to correctly identify a vehicle movement and classification- often not enough time for large, busy intersections or roundabouts.
