vTie

Video based traffic information extraction

Problem

A thorough analysis of traffic information both historical and real time is crucial for an efficient traffic management. Most of the existing traffic detectors allow only for traffic density estimates over the range of at least a dozen of minutes. However, they provide no detailed description of the traffic situation at the intersection, such as current queue length, number of approaching vehicles, number of vehicles turning in different directions, waiting time, or time required to pass the intersection.

Our solution

We offer an AI-based computer vision product vTie. It works with video livestreams, which are recorded by traffic surveillance cameras, and collects traffic information in real time. vTie determines the positions and tracks all road users in the field of view of the cameras (up to 70-100 meters into the distance). It extracts real-time traffic information such as queue length, number of approaching vehicles, number of vehicles turning in different directions, waiting time, and time required to pass the intersection. vTie can be used together with Mitco or as a separate product for traffic analysis. All information is made available in real time via an API so that third-party providers can also access the data.
