This report describes several algorithms for incident detection. An algorithm based on lane data was specified and tested. This algorithm was compared with existing algorithms for two months of data. It appeared that the lane algorithm and the McMaster algorithms gave bad results. Most of the incidents were detected, but also a lot of false alarms were generated. The other two algorithms did better giving a smaller amount of false alarms, but they didn’t detect that much incidents or they detected incidents too slow. For algorithms improvements are possible, especially in the parameters settings.
