Traffic Data Collection Technologies for Local Roads Survey

Announcement from Ohio's Research Initiative for Locals

Ohio’s Research Initiative for Locals (ORIL) program in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is conducting a study on Traffic Data Collection Technologies for Local Roads. As part of this study, a survey was developed to gather information about current traffic monitoring technologies used by local public agencies in Ohio and other states.

This Research-On-Call (ROC) task will focus on a report that summarizes the current state-of-practice for traffic data collection technologies for local roads. It should include information about the use and benefits of sensing technologies that are widely used. What are the advantages and disadvantages of these technologies, approximate costs and limitations. A deliverable for this task will include a matrix including all this information along with the Draft and Final Report.

This survey is intended for local public agencies (LPAs) in all states nationwide. We would like to see local agency responses from as many states as possible, and your cooperation in completing the survey will help ensure the success of this study.

The survey should take less than 5 minutes to complete, and it will be available through April 12, 2024. Please feel free to share this link with colleagues who are in charge of traffic data collection. 

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Richard Li of the University of Cincinnati at [email protected]. Additional materials you would like to provide to supplement your survey response may be emailed directly to Dr. Li. Your input is critical to the success of this study. Thank you very much for your time and expertise.
