With continued interest in the efficient use of roadways, the ability to monitor the use of High Occupancy Vehicle/High Occupancy Toll (HOV/HOT) lanes is essential for management, planning and operation. A system to reliably monitor these lanes on a continuous basis and provide usage statistics would be very helpful in supporting management operations and decision making. In this study the authors evaluated the potential of an imaging system that would be installed on the median wall of HOV/HOT… Expand
Vehicle Occupancy Detection for HOV/HOT Lanes Enforcement
TLDR
A front-seat vehicle occupancy detection as part of a low-computational computer vision HOV/HOT lane enforcement system and the robustness of the novel vehicle windshield image segmentation technique are confirmed. Expand
Occupancy Detection in Vehicles Using Fisher Vector Image Representation
TLDR
This paper examines two methods of determining vehicle front seat occupancy using a near infrared (NIR) camera system pointed at the vehicle's front windshield and a state-of-the-art deformable part model (DPM) based face detection system that is robust to facial pose. Expand
Passenger Compartment Violation Detection in HOV/HOT Lanes
TLDR
Computer vision methods for detecting vehicle occupancy, seatbelt violation, and driver cell phone usage from NIR images captured from HOV/HOT lanes are proposed and compared with image classification methods for vehicle occupancy and seat belt violation detection. Expand
Comparison of Early and Late Information Fusion for Multi-camera HOV Lane Enforcement
TLDR
This paper compares combining information from the two cameras using either an early fusion approach or a late fusion approach to determine whether the vehicle is a car pool lane violator or not and a set of images acquired 'in-the-wild' from public roadway testing sites. Expand
Comparison of face detection and image classification for detecting front seat passengers in vehicles
TLDR
This paper examines two methods of determining vehicle front seat occupancy using a near infrared (NIR) camera system pointed at the vehicle's front windshield and a state-of-the-art deformable part model (DPM) based face detection system that is robust to facial pose. Expand
A machine learning approach to vehicle occupancy detection
TLDR
An image-based machine learning approach for automatic or semi-automatic vehicle occupancy detection is described, which localizes windshield regions by constructing an elastic deformation model from sets of uniquely defined landmark points along the front windshield. Expand
VPDS: An AI-Based Automated Vehicle Occupancy and Violation Detection System
TLDR
A Vehicle Passenger Detection System (VPDS) which works by capturing images through Near Infrared (NIR) cameras on the toll lanes and processing them using deep Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) models which can generate an accurate report of HOV lane usage which helps policy makers pave the way towards de-congestion. Expand
Driver Cell Phone Usage Detection from HOV/HOT NIR Images
TLDR
This paper proposes a computer vision based method for determining driver cell phone usage using a near infrared (NIR) camera system directed at the vehicle's front windshield and proposes two classification architectures by using full face and half face images for classification and compares their performance in terms of accuracy, specificity, and sensitivity.
