Supporting City Planning with Traffic Monitoring in Image Sequences

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional

Abstract

Traffic monitoring is increasingly assisting transportation and infrastructure planning in urban areas. Video sensors can capture detailed information about the nature of moving traffic objects and estimate their speed. VTT has developed a generic tool for traffic monitoring, that allows interactive definition of traffic events, and stores position and speed records in geocoded (GIS) form for later analysis. The tool is being used by Helsinki City Planning Department for joint analysis of vehicle and pedestrian behaviours near pedestrian crossings, as well as intersection monitoring.
