Paper presented at the 33rd Annual Southern African Transport Conference 7-10 July 2014 "Leading Transport into the Future", CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, South Africa.
Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology provides the opportunity to collect accurate traffic data from various locations throughout a road network. The data, collected from a wide area, can produce detailed information on traffic operations including traffic counts, average travel speeds and reliable origin destination (OD) data. This data can also provide essential inputs into the building, calibration and validation of traffic models. It is the author’s belief that this data is under-utilised and this paper explores the potential uses and true value of this data, including the generation of origin-destination (OD) information.
