Because traffic incident is the main cause of traffic congestion in Highway, traffic incident detection plays an important role in ITS. Based on the professional software VISSIM, we performed an experiment on incident caused by traffic jam to obtain the original simulated data. We offered a way to deal and analyse the traffic prameters, then an updated automatic traffic incident detection method was proposed based on BP neural network. Simulation result shows that the new method has many
more » ... ges such as higher detection rate, lower false alarm rate and shorter mean detection time.
