Abstract

Vehicle detection and tracking is one of the key components of the smart traffic concept. Modern city planning and development is not achievable without proper knowledge of existing traffic flows within the city. Surveillance video is an undervalued source of traffic information, which can be discovered by variety of information technology tools and solutions, including machine learning techniques. A solution for real-time vehicle traffic monitoring, tracking and counting is proposed in Jelgava city, Latvia. It uses object detection model for locating vehicles on the image from outdoor surveillance camera. Detected vehicles are passed to tracking module, which is responsible for building vehicle trajectory and its counting. This research compares two different model training approaches (uniform and diverse data sets) used for vehicle detection in variety of weather and day-time conditions. The system demonstrates good accuracy of given test cases (about 92% accuracy in average). In addition, results are compared to non-machine learning vehicle tracking approach, where notable vehicle detection accuracy increase is demonstrated on congested traffic. This research is fulfilled within the RETRACT (Enabling resilient urban transportation systems in smart cities) project.
