Traficon (http://www.flir.com) is a Belgian subsidiary of US-based FLIR Systems, and offers solutions for traffic detection tasks based on video image processing.
Vision++ designed and implemented a fully automatic self-calibration routine for the Traficon SafeWalk platform. This platform aims at detecting pedestrians waiting at pedestrian’s crossings using a stereo setup. The main goal of SafeWalk is to improve pedestrian operations and safety at traffic signals. The technologies used in this vision solution are:
- Automatic feature detection
- Implementation of custom lens calibration models
- Stereo vision and optical flow
- Embedded programming (ARM platform)
