CHEN, Chi-Hua; LO, Chi-Chun e LIN, Hui-Fei. The analysis of speed-reporting rates from a cellular network based on a fingerprint-positioning algorithm. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2013, vol.24, n.1, pp.98-106. ISSN 2224-7890.
The collection of real-time traffic information is an important part of intelligent transportation systems. In particular, cellular floating vehicle data (CFVD) technology has become increasingly widespread, and more and more popular for measuring and forecasting real-time traffic information, based on anonymous sampling of the positions of mobile phones. This study proposes an analytical model to analyse the speed-reporting rates -based on communication behaviour, traffic conditions, and the two consecutive fingerprint-positioning locations from the call arrival and call completion signals of the same call - for a feasibility evaluation of CFVD.
