Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Bluetooth Sensing Technology

Acronym: BST
Main Objective: The Bluetooth Sensing Technology project aims to deploy Bluetooth scanners along the freeway/arterial network in the road proximity. The idea is to locate a single detector in a place that can cover both ways of direction where data can be transmitted without interferences (i.e. the middle of a freeway, Fig. 2).
In addition to the main task of designing and building a prototype of Bluetooth scanner (Task 1), the Bluetooth Sensing Technology project will include two other tasks that further expand the scope of the collaborative research that is involving faculty from different Portuguese research institutions and universities: the research experiment conduction to measure the traffic conditions (Task 2) and the data evaluation and results interpretation (Task 3).
Conclusions regarding effective traffic management, control and flow optimization as it pertains to travel information such as Origin/Destination (O/D) matrices, travel times and route inference will be drawn by comparison of these parameters for each vehicle. The data evaluation will allow characterizing arterial/freeway systems and classifying them.
