This paper analyzes freeway data consisting of velocity and gap size measured by sensors of 200ft intervals along the roadway. Distributions of velocity, gap size, and downstream change in gap size (gap stability) are displayed. Differences in actual and expected time of arrival of gaps at an entrance ramp merge point are likewise considered. Finally, several algorithms for scheduling ramp vehicles to intercept freeway gaps, measured at a decision detector upstream from the ramp, are compared.
