Abstract
Vehicle counting in traffic videos plays an essential role in traffic surveillance system. It can provide some important traffic information such as congestion level and statistical analysis of traffic flow. In this paper, a novel vehicle counting strategy, which is based on foreground detection algorithm in videos, is proposed. Two advantages are contributed by our method. First, it is cost-saving as no additional hardware devices are required. Second, the influence to performance caused by weather variations is eliminated by the use of foreground detection technique. Finally, We compare our method with the state-of-the-art methods, and the experimental results clearly demonstrate the effectiveness of our method on complex real world traffic videos.
