Abstract
Motivated by recent interest in intelligent transportation systems, this paper considers the problem of tracking diverse vehicles as they traverse a roadway instrumented with video cameras. From vehicle tracks it is straight- forward to compute basic traffic parameters such as flow, speed, and concentration. The vehicles to be tracked can be dense and we assume that computational resources are limited. Therefore, we cannot consider 3D processing but rather must partition the problem as much as possible into 1D or 2D problems. The key simplifying aspect is that the vehicles follow known tracks.
