VEHICLE DETECTION VIDEO THROUGH IMAGE PROCESSING: THE AUTOSCOPE SYSTEM

This paper describes recent worldwide developments in video camera vehicle detection systems. Discusses one system developed in the U.S., Autoscope. Includes earlier work leading to Autoscope's present state and its advantages over other emerging devices. Recent progress such as preproduction line prototype development, field testing and plans for extensive field validation and verification are also presented. The latter include two large demonstration projects recently initiated in Minneapolis. In the first project, Autoscope will be used for incident detection over a section of Interstate 394. The second project involves implementation of the machine vision system at a signalized intersection.
