Data Descriptions#

per-vehicle speed and lengths#

The data is given as a tar file named fsp_speed_and_lengths.tar (~40MB). Within this tar-file you will find a folder which contains compressed (gzip) data files. Each data file represents a day for one direction (north/south). The following days are given:

  • 16.02.93
  • 17.02.93
  • 18.02.93
  • 19.02.93
  • 22.02.93
  • 24.02.93

The files are tab-delimited with the following fields:

  • Detector position (in meters)
  • Detector lane
  • Time (in ?)
  • vehicle speed (probably in m/s)
  • vehicle length (in m)
