<jats:p>In this paper the results of an experimental survey on traffic monitoring devices, named SMART Project, are presented. Aim of the project was to define the requirements to be applied to traffic technologies to match specific applications. The project involved the construction of a test site on a main road, where seven different traffic monitoring systems were installed. A 1 year survey was carried out to assess technologies response to environmental and mechanical solicitations. A reference system specifically devoted to check and validate the devices under test was designed for the project. Test procedures were also developed to control the results achieved. The outcomes accomplished for vehicles counting are described in details in the essay hereunder.
