(BigData 2020) Heavy Vehicle Classification through Deep Learning

About This Webinar

Abstract: Understanding the flow of traffic on road networks is increasingly important especially with the continued urbanization of the global population. Numerous hardware and software technologies have been applied to measure traffic volumes by Government agencies and/or organizations such as Google, however they are either expensive to deploy; limited in their ability to disambiguate the kinds of vehicles on the road network, or of increasing importance, they infringe on the privacy of individuals, e.g. tracking phones. In this paper we describe work applying deep learning technologies to identify and classify different vehicles on the road network of Victoria with specific focus on heavy goods vehicles (trucks and trailers). Specifically, we present an approach to automatically detect, classify and count the unique classes of trucks and trailers that are found on the road network and the direction of travel. We apply and compare leading deep learning approaches including You Only Look Once version 3 (YOLOv3) and Single Shot Multi-Box Detector (SSD). This paper builds upon earlier work which focused on data (video) from a single traffic junction in Melbourne. This work is based on a wider range of data (videos) from locations reflecting the diversity of road use including multi-lane motorways, rural roads and city roads.
