Optimized Car Counting
Abstract A vehicle detection and counting system plays an important role in an intelligent transportation system, especially for traffic management. This paper proposes a video-based method for vehicle detection and counting system based on computer vision technology. Optimized Car Counting The proposed method uses background subtraction technique to find foreground objects in a video sequence. In order to detect moving vehicles more accurately, several computer vision techniques, including thresholding, hole filling and adaptive morphology operations, are then applied. Finally, vehicle counting is done by using a virtual detection zone. Experimental results show that the accuracy of the proposed vehicle counting system is around 96%.
