This report describes research done on determining the state of the traffic on a road, using data from loop detectors and video cameras. The loop detectors measure speeds and flows on cross-sections, while the cameras measure travel time. The subject of the research was to look at the possibilities of using the travel time measurements in combination with the flow and speed measurements (datafusion) for a more accurate estimation of the situation on a road. For this new methods were developed and assessed. One of methods involved the use of a traffic model.
