Opportunistic Traffic Sensing Using Existing Video Sources II (Phase II)

The objective of this project is to create new research results and a software artifact with the purpose of counting vehicles and vehicle movements using existing road-facing video cameras. This phase II project builds on phase I where a prototype/proof of concept was developed which demonstrated the ability to perform said tasks under good conditions. This project will make the software available to practitioners in the field, as well as improve the software for use under more challenging conditions.
