Traffic Task: Question about measurements

Postby hatimqadah » Wed Aug 25, 2010 5:56 am

The data given to us in the training set is the congestion, which is defined as: the number of cars passing through the segment during each 1-min period. My question is for each segment where was the measurement made? Was the flow measurement at the boundary or interior of each segment? Or should we just assume that the flow was consistent throughout the area of each segment?

The measurement was made at the end of the segment, so we count cars which leave the segment.
