Traffic Flow Measurement Using An Onboard Camera

It can be expected that in a near future many vehicles will have an embedded front camera. Using the onboard camera for traffic density and flow measurement is a desirable feature for traffic management systems. In this paper, the author describes the implementation of the embedded traffic flow measurement subsystem of the REACT and COM2REACT European Projects. The “Traffic Sensor” includes a vehicle detection subsystem, a lane detection subsystem, and proposes a flow estimation method. This application has been implemented and tested on a fleet of 4 Citroen C3 vehicles and is currently in a validation phase.
