Aerial surveillance is one way of monitoring the progression of events in disaster-stricken areas, one important aspect of which is conducting a search for(More)
Computer Vision has been used as an effective approach to developing cost-efficient traffic surveillance systems. Traffic surveillance systems are now used for vehicle detection, tracking, recognition and counting. However, performing these tasks are not easy especially when challenges in traffic arise such as varying lighting conditions, effect of shadows(More)
