ARTIFICIAL VISION APPLIED TO OCCUPANTS VEHICLE DETECTION

The Biomedical Engineering Research Centre (CREB UPC) in collaboration with the company EMTE created an optical sensing pioneer in Europe device which detects the number of occupants in a vehicle. The device is reliably with optimal operatibility levels working on limited illumination conditions. The device installed in the tunnel toll in Vallvidrera (now extended to others) can reduce the rate to high-occupancy vehicles. It is based on the data process ot images obtained by several cameras recording inside the vehicle, identifying the number of occupants and without causing inconvenience to drivers.
