(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR EFFICIENT INFORMATION EXTRACTION IN TRAFFIC MONITORING
Abstract
(EN)

A surveillance device includes an imaging unit configured generate full-quality image data from a captured image of a vehicle, an image filtering module that converts the full-quality image data to reduced-quality image data. The surveillance device also includes a subsector module that processes the reduced-quality image data to generate subsector data defining one or more sub sectors of the captured image, and an image processing module that identifies one or more specific vehicle characteristics within the one or more subsectors by applying image recognition processing on the full-quality image data only within the one or more subsectors. The reduced quality image data is insufficient for the image recognition processing to identify specific vehicle characteristics therefrom.
