ABSTRACT
The article reports on the functions of computerized traffic cameras in railroad systems in the U.S. The systems are referred as intelligent traffic systems because they control traffic, store analyzed data on road use, and record traffic flow for congestion drivers. They record licensed plate numbers, entry and exit points, and tracks fast-moving cars and trucks to be used in calculating traffic signal timing. The cameras can also be used for educational purpose since they provide data to drivers on travel times, congested areas or take alternative routes.
