VEHICLE CLASSIFICATION USING NEURAL NETWORKS BASED UPON ACOUSTIC SIGNALS
This paper presents a method of vehicle classification using neural networks based upon acoustic signals detected by the AT&T SmartSonic Sensor as inputs to the networks. All data were collected from a sensor located on highway Route 460 near the Virginia Tech campus in southwest Virginia. All vehicle classifications are performed in the time domain. The feedforward multilayer perceptron trained with error backpropagation is the main algorithm used in this classification task, although a radial basis function and K nearest neighbor classifiers are used for comparison. The K nearest neighbor is the only classical method used to compare with neural network approaches. The nature of the data made decision tree algorithms ineffectual.
