Unmanned aerial vehicle based speeding and tailgating detection system

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) offer a considerable potential for road safety stakeholders; they have been already used for tasks such as assisting first responders. This paper reports on a small-scale prototyping effort to use UAVs to measure speeding and tailgating on major urban roads. One hour of UAV footage was acquired and a custom vehicle detection system was programmed. From this, we developed methods to extract vehicles’ speed and headways. Validation information was extracted from TMR induction loop present near the testing site.
