Weather & Traffic

Improving predicting traffic including forecast by identifying the effect of weather on traffic and traffic demand.

January 1 st 2008 to June 30th 2009

Executive summary

The aim of the project was to identify the effects of weather on traffic flow and demand. Analyses of these facts were compacted into a practical mathematical model by integrating it into the traffic management system of Verkehrsbund Ost-Region (VOR). This resulted in an optimization of traffic calculations and forecasts. Weather & Traffic was a national project in Austria and forms the basis for the platform AnachB. at. This platform offers constantly updated traffic information for all means of transport in Vienna, Lower Austria, and Burgenland. UBIMET’s role in this project was to provide high-precision weather data and analyze the effects of weather on traffic flow and demand.
