. Traffic Movement Counts (TMC Report)

TMC report offers consolidated and accurate information of your travel volumes on all your traffic movements on the road, intersection or a roundabout. It combines three dimensions of the data: 

  1. Traffic movement - your traffic movements selected for generating the report (you can choose all movements, events and scenarios)
  2. Time interval - time unit which you have selected when generating the report (you can select time unit between 1 sec to 24 hours)
  3. Traffic object class - vehicle classes and pedestrians selected for the report (you can choose all of them at once without limitation)

This report provides separate traffic volumes per each interval/movement/class as well as sub-totals and totals per whole movement, all vehicle classes, etc.

TMC report can be generated for multiple traffic movements at once, where movement-specific TMC tables will appear as separate sheets in the Excel report.

2. Vehicle List (Intrusions Report)

Vehicle list report captures every single vehicle, bicycle or pedestrian passing through your traffic movement on the junction or the sidewalk (gate, turn, custom O-D movement, ..). In addition, it provides following detailed behavioral traffic metrics:

Example: a traffic movement is defined as the passage from LINE 1 to LINE 2

  • Entry Time - a timestamp of entering into the movement - passage through LINE 1
  • Exit Time - a timestamp of exiting the movement - passage through LINE 2
  • Class - class of the traffic object (car, van, pedestrian, ...)
  • Time Gap - a headway time between the fronts of two consecutive vehicles
  • Travel Time - a time that a vehicle spent to move from entry to the exit
  • Travel Speed - when geo-location of entry/exit gates is provided

Vehicle list report can be generated for multiple traffic movements at once, which will appear as separate sheets in the Excel report.

3. Saturation Flow Report

Saturation flow report describes the number of passenger car units (PCU) in a dense flow of traffic for a specific intersection capacity and time the traffic signals. 

There are multiple metrics defined in the Saturation Flow report: 

  • Freeflow interval - each reading for saturation flow calculation
  • Start of full demand - start of the reading for saturation flow calculation
  • End of full demand -  end of the reading for saturation flow calculation
  • Duration - duration of the reading for saturation flow calculation
  • Traffic Volumes - multi-modal traffic volumes in each of the readings
  • Total PCU - total passenger car units in each of the readings
  • Saturation Flow per Interval - saturation flow calculated in each of the readings
  • Total Saturation Flow - total saturation flow calculation for the selected lane


4. Origin-Destination Matrix Report

Origin-Destination report is one of the standard TMC reports and a quick and simple way how to discover traffic volumes on your scene. It is based only on combinations of Entries and Exits. GoodVision now allows you to create this report even without creating movements for all combinations of approaches. Just draw lines or zones that represent your desired entry/exit areas, create the OD matrix report in the report builder and choose the movements which will be included in the report (or exclude the ones that are not necessary for you). The report will be sent to your e-mail and as a side-effect, the chosen movements will be automatically created on the Describe Scene page (if they had not been created before).

Hint:
OD matrix is usually used for junctions to get a quick overview about the traffic object counts for each direction but it can be useful for roundabouts or roads as well. Normally two approaches - lines or zones are enough for a bidirectional road, four for typical "X" intersection, one line/zone per each entry/exit on roundabouts.
