Paper Abstract

Currently, the conflict between vehicle and road is becoming increasingly serious, how to implement advanced technology to obtain traffic information fast and accurately becomes a key point to upgrade the level of transportation management and services. It is an important expansion of conventional technology that the dynamic traffic information is obtained rapidly by the low-altitude aircraft. It is low cost and suitable for collecting a wide range of traffic information. This paper use low-altitude airship as the platform, and several sensors(such as GPS,CCD, video encoder and COFDM wireless transmission equipment) are integrated into the aircraft compose a low altitude remote sensing platform to obtain the high-definition traffic video data. This paper aim at the video proposed a vehicle detection method in the complex and varying background. This method is capable of detecting moving and static vehicles accurately on the road in real time without any supplementary information.
