This report describes the possibilities of video monitoring in the Netherlands. The systems and algorithms for video detection have been improved a lot the last couple of years. However, it is still the question if they meet the requirements of Rijkswaterstaat. The application for congestion warning (AID) shows that the current loop detection method suffices. For other traffic management applications video detection can be useful in addition to the current detection system.
