LMR Data Collection for Traffic Modeling

LMR Data Collection for Traffic Modeling
LMR Data Collection for Traffic Modeling
The purpose of the Land Mobile Radio (LMR) Data Collection Project is to create a database of Public safety (PS) LMR usage for traffic/call modeling. The generated models may be used by telecom providers and PS entities for future technology deployments (e.g., LTE and 5G). This session presents the results from a recent Radio Frequency (RF) geolocation sensor system test deployment in Boulder, CO, as well as results from testing away from the Front Range. Current geolocation results, although having substantial error, are still useful in developing the modeling method. Future activities for this project include for participating public safety entities to provide P25 traffic and location data, in addition to sensor system deployments. Additional deployments in other U.S. cities are also being planned.
