Low cost traffic monitoring

Traffic monitoring systems usually make assumptions about the movement of vehicles, such as that they drive in dedicated lanes, and that those lanes rarely include non-vehicle clutter. Urban settings within developing countries often present extremely chaotic traffic scenarios which make these assumptions unrealistic.

This work, with PhD student Rose Nakibuule, is aimed at producing a software which can cope with dense, cluttered images of Kampala traffic, and solar-powered mobile hardware which can be deployed at around $100 per installation.
