OBJECTIVESThis experiment will include the space field study. The space field study will be done by using a License plate matching technique.
INTRODUCTION AND THEORYThe space mean speed is used to find the average speed of vehicles crossing a certain section of the roadside. The method that was used to conduct the space mean speed is License plate matching technique. This method is used to track the vehicles and find travel time data. This method finds the average speed of vehicles crossing a certain section of the roadside.

APPARATUSNote to write the information
METHODOLOGY AND PROCEDUREThis technique requires two groups of observers. Each of them will stand the beginning and the end of the test road section each recording the plate number of each car with the time at which the car arrives.
Matching the plate numbers and recording the time arrival at the beginning and end for each licenses plate
Finding the average traveling time on the test road section which is the difference between time arrival at the beginning and end for each licenses plate
DATA AND CALCULATIONSFormula
Time mean speed = average speed=?vnSpace mean speed= d?tnV= speed of the vehicle Km/hrD= distance traveled
n= number of observation
t= travel time of vehicle
Mode= most repeated number
Median= number in the middle of our velocity numbers
Range= Biggest number subtracted from smallest number
Time difference= Time out-Time in
RESULTS AND GRAPHSOn Excel sheet
SAMPLE OF CALCULATIONSMaximum velocity= 60 Km/hrMinimum velocity= 27.7 Km/hrn=

CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONSThe License plate matching technique is useful in the engineering life in understanding variability of travel destination and time amongst vehicle in the traffic stream. After doing a research I have found that the speed limits with residential areas is 45 km/h .
License plate matching technique was used to conduct average speed of vehicles crossing a certain section of the roadside. This was done by matching the vehicles License plate, recording the time arrival at the beginning and end for each licenses plate and finding travel time data.
