Phase I would develop and demonstrate prototype software and hardware that would embody a simplified version of the system. Phase II would enhance the system algorithms and sensor as a real-time traffic survey collection device. Phase II would also address issues related to making the system at least minimally functional during rain and snow events. Researchers would conduct laboratory and field tests of improved hardware and algorithms and conduct field operational tests through summer 2010. A Go-No Go decision was made on phase II to proceed with recommendation for award.
To determine whether it is possible to count and track pedestrians using a combination of stereo imaging and light detection and ranging (LIDAR).
It was determined that it is theoretically feasible to count and track pedestrians using a combination of stereo imaging and light detection and ranging (LIDAR).
