The analysis of speed-reporting rates from a cellular network based on a fingerprint-positioning algorithm

Chi-Hua Chen, Chi-Chun Lo, Hui-Fei Lin


The collection of real-time traffic information is an important part of intelligent transportation systems. In particular, cellular floating vehicle data (CFVD) technology has become increasingly widespread, and more and more popular for measuring and forecasting real-time traffic information, based on anonymous sampling of the positions of mobile phones. This study proposes an analytical model to analyse the speed-reporting rates based on communication behaviour, traffic conditions, and the two consecutive fingerprint-positioning locations from the call arrival and call completion signals of the same call for a feasibility evaluation of CFVD.
