Robust and Online Vehicle Counting at Crowded Intersections
In this paper, we propose an online movement-specific vehicle counting system to realize robust traffic flow analysis at crowed intersections. Our proposed framework adopts PP-YOLO as the vehicle detector and adapts the Deep-Sort algorithm to perform multi-object tracking. In order to realize online and robust vehicle counting, we further adopt a shape-based movement assignment strategy to differentiate movements and carefully designed spatial constraints to effectively reduce false-positive counts. Our proposed framework achieves the overall S1-score of 0.9467, ranking the first in the AICITY2021-track1 challenge.
