Intelligent transport system (ITS) is the system that manages road traffic using information and communications technology. One of the most important part of ITS is the vehicle detection which provides vehicular data such as volume, density, and speed for the traffic management center. This paper proposes a vehicle detection method which measures volume and speed based on vehicle to infrastructure communication (V2I) and Global Positioning System (GPS). It can be implemented on roadway infrastructure with or without another type of vehicle detector such as loop detector.
