Abstract: Due to increasing demand and growing cities, traffic prediction has been a topic of interest for many researchers for the past few decades. The availability of large amounts of traffic-related data and the emerging field of machine learning algorithms has led to a significant leap towards data-driven methods. In this paper, loop counter data are used to develop models that can predict traffic flow for several different prediction intervals into the future. In depth exploratory data analysis and statistical testing is performed to obtain good quality informative features. Several feature sets were compared by using different machine learning methods: Ridge Regression, SVR and Random Forests. The results show that in order to obtain good prediction results thorough feature extraction is just as or even more important than learning method selection. Good features enables us to use less complex methods, which run faster, are more reliable and easier to maintain. In conclusion, we address ideas regarding how predictions could be improved even further. (More)
