lane2: Speed-Flow data for Californian Freeway

lane2R Documentation

Speed-Flow data for Californian Freeway

Description

These are two data sets collected in 1993 on two individual lanes (lane 2 and lane 3) of the 4-lane Californian freeway I-880. The data were collected by loop detectors, and the time units are 30 seconds per observation (see Petty et al., 1996, for details).

Usage

lane2; lane3

Format

Two data frames (lane2 and lane3) each with 1318 observations on the following two variables:

flow

a numeric vector giving the traffic flow in vehicles per lane per hour.

speed

a numeric vector giving the speed in miles per hour.

Details

The data is examined in Einbeck and Tutz (2006), using a nonparametric approach to multi-valued regression based on conditional mean shift.
