Abstract

Traffic flow prediction is an important application of the ITS technology. In this paper, we applied non-linear time-series modeling techniques to analyze a traffic data. Our objective is to investigate the deterministic properties of traffic flow using a nonlinear time series analysis technique. The experiment is performed for inductance loop data collected from the San Antonio freeway system. Our study concludes that the traffic data exhibits chaotic properties and techniques based on phase space dynamics can be used to analyze and predict the traffic flow.
