Transportation Seminar: Measuring the Quality of Traveler and Traffic Information with Klaus Bogenberger
Thursday, June 27, 2013 - 9:32am

Join us for a SPECIAL Transportation Seminar on Monday, August 5, 2013 at 2:00 in the PSU Engineering Building ITS Lab (Room 315).

Professor Klaus Bogenberger, from the University of Federal Armed Forces in Munich, will present Measuring the Quality of Traveler and Traffic Information.

This seminar will present a new method of determining quality criteria, the aim being to assist independent and objective assessment of traffic and traveler information. Three extensive test series were carried out to assess the quality of traffic information reporting. The tests included a study and comparison of both private and public traffic information providers. Two specific indices are defined to describe quality. This process, which is derived from the area of signal detection theory, offers the possibility of continuously measuring the quality with which traffic information is reported and comparing traffic information services objectively.
