Optoelectronic systems for automatic vehicle counting and classification in rest areas

The following paper depicts an architectural layout and operational insights towards an optoelectronic system dedicated for vehicle counting and classification, designed to monitor occupancy of rest areas. The system is based upon the image cue acquisition by video cameras and optical signal processing mechanism. In order to satisfy the appropriate realization of measurement procedure (counting and classification), a specific measurement configuration scheme alongside optimized video stream capturing parameters were set up. Concerning signal processing methods, the most effective and appropriate for the purpose of vehicle counting and classifciation were selected. Moreover, the article presents the outcomes of the designed measurement campaign conducted on the S7 transit route within the agenda of the National Center for Research and Development RID project. The results obtained with use of the designed methodology were compared to the outcomes of the manual method.
