Highway End-of-Queue in-Vehicle Alerting System Based on Probe Vehicle Data

Yaobin Chen, Lingxi Li, Feng Li, Renran Tian, Keyu Ruan, Dan Shen, Zahra Yarmand

Highway congestions cause a much higher crash rate compared to uncongested driving conditions. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) may cause increased driver inattention that delays driver response during highway cruising.

Vehicle and Incident Detection and Classification from Existing INDOT CCTV Feeds

Stanley Chien, Yaobin Chen, and Zhengming Ding, TASI, IUPUI

This project is to develop an automated and intelligent traffic condition monitoring system that will (1) automatically detect the traffic density, flow rate on each lane at all locations observed by the cameras, (2) identify the number and type of vehicles passing through each road,(3) detect start and end locations of traffic jams, (4) detect accidents,(5) prioritize the importance of different incidents and notify the traffic monitoring operators for all traffic incidents and (6) provide tools to the traffic monitoring operators to quickly gather the information of the incident scene.
