This paper deals with the error recovery problem when scanned license plate data are used to predict traffic flows. The aim is to reduce the effects of errors owing to lost plates or mistaken transcription, to improve estimation results. To this end, a method is given and discussed for traffic flow prediction using plate scanning data and taking into account possible errors in plate number recognition. The proposed method uses Bayesian networks because this is an efficient tool for introducing the plate scan error flow as a variable in the model and mending the mistakes in the scan pattern. Several examples are used to illustrate the proposed model. Finally, some conclusions are included. © 2011 American Society of Civil Engineers.
