Abstract
We have previously used real time visible T.V. image processing to monitor road traffic. Searches for simpler scene information have led us to infrared imaging with a pyroelectric vidicon. Our paper will compare the visible and infrared information and its real time preprocessing requirements. Use of these features will be described in the areas of simple vehicle classification, tracking through entry and exit points of simple road junctions and for vehicle separation. The real time information processing operations are carried out on our pipeline processing system which uses dedicated processors and reconfigurable processing routes operating at full frame T.V. rates.
