The TIME project has focussed on urban traffic, using the city of Cambridge as an example. We have investigated sensor and network technology for gathering traffic data, and have designed and built reusable software components to distribute, process and store sensor data in real time. We have shown that these data can be used for a number of purposes.

Firstly, archived data can be analysed statistically to understand the behaviour of traffic under a range of “normal” conditions at different times, for example in and out of school term. Secondly, periods of extreme congestion resulting from known incidents can be analysed to show the behaviour of traffic over time. Thirdly, with such analyses providing background information, real-time data can be interpreted in context to provide more reliable and accurate information to citizens.
