This report provides the necessary information for using two separate computer programs 1 a simulation model of vehicle traffic through fields of emplaced magnetic, acoustic, or seismic sensors and 2 a pattern detection algorithm of two-way vehicle traffic through a field of emplaced sensors. The simulation model supplies the user with a device to simulate detection patterns of different sensors under varying vehicle-flow and background false-alarm conditions. In addition, it provides inputs to the pattern detection algorithm allowing precise verification of the pattern recognizers ability to detect vehicle flow. The pattern detection algorithm is designed to accept inputs from the simulation model to allow proper selection of critical parameters. It is also designed to accept real-world data--both actual detections and false alarms--of vehicle flow past fields of sensors.
