3-D Data Processing to Extract Vehicle Trajectories from Roadside LiDAR Data

3-D Data Processing to Extract Vehicle Trajectories from Roadside LiDAR Data High-resolution vehicle data including location, speed, and direction is significant for new transportation systems, such as connected-vehicle applications, micro-level traffic performance evaluation, and adaptive traffic control.

Abstract

High-resolution vehicle data including location, speed, and direction is significant for new transportation systems, such as connected-vehicle applications, micro-level traffic performance evaluation, and adaptive traffic control. This research developed a data processing procedure for detection and tracking of multi-lane multi-vehicle trajectories with a roadside light detection and ranging (LiDAR) sensor. Different from existing methods for vehicle onboard sensing systems, this procedure was developed specifically to extract high-resolution vehicle trajectories from roadside LiDAR sensors. This procedure includes preprocessing of the raw data, statistical outlier removal, a Least Median of Squares based ground estimation method to accurately remove the ground points, vehicle data clouds clustering, a principle component-based oriented bounding box method to estimate the location of the vehicle, and a geometrically-based tracking algorithm. The developed procedure has been applied to a two-way-stop-sign intersection and an arterial road in Reno, Nevada. The data extraction procedure has been validated by comparing tracking results and speeds logged from a testing vehicle through the on-board diagnostics interface. This data processing procedure could be applied to extract high-resolution trajectories of connected and unconnected vehicles for connected-vehicle applications, and the data will be valuable to practices in traffic safety, traffic mobility, and fuel efficiency estimation.
