MobiTrick – Mobile Traffic Checker

MobiTrick is a portable and compact traffic monitoring system that utilizes image processing capabilities to perform typical traffic monitoring tasks. It is based on a heterogeneous-sensors architecture using infrared and visible-light cameras. This setup allows utilizing the advantages of both sensors and additionally enables heterogeneous stereo reconstruction for 3D monitoring of vehicles. Due to the mobility factor, MobiTrick sensing platform is battery operated and hence imposes a strict limitation on power consumption. Therefore, it needs an efficient power management technique that optimizes the overall power consumption of the system. This paper presents MobiTrick’s design architecture, novel vision-based techniques to perform the monitoring tasks, and the current work on an online Dynamic Power Management (DPM) strategy to minimize the sensing platform’s power consumption.
