Venkatesh Wadawadagi, Solution Consultant at Sahaj Software Solutions, presents the “Challenges in Vision-based Adaptive Traffic Control Systems” tutorial at the May 2021 Embedded Vision Summit.
Adaptive traffic control systems (ATCSs) adjust traffic signal timing based on demand. Wadawadagi begins by presenting the main building blocks of a vision-based ATCS, including pre-processing, vehicle detection, vehicle classification and vehicle tracking.
Next, he examines several of the key technical challenges in developing a computer vision-based ATCS and explores approaches for overcoming these challenges. These challenges stem from the need for an ATCS to perform accurate person and vehicle detection despite a huge variety of vehicle types, occlusion of objects of interest and difficult lighting conditions.
