Automatic incident detection

A rapid detection of incidents is necessary for a swift recovery of traffic after the occurrence of incidents. There are a number of possibilities for this, one of them is to use loop detection systems. These provide data on traffic flow and speed. One of the questions is how to make a distinction between situations with and without incidents. Another questions is can the current algorithms be improved or can we think of a new algorithm which is better than the existing ones.
