Abstract
The DOT seeks an integrated unit capable of identifying and tracking individual vehicles with high accuracy using multiple vehicle detection inputs, including video images, radar-based detection, and vehicle-to-everything radio signal inputs (DSRC, cellular-V2X), with a deep learning-based engine to fuse collected data. To address this DOT need, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to continue the development of a new Deep Learning-based Vehicle Tracking with Multiple Sensors (DETRAM) system based on a deep learning engine. DETRAM uses multiple deep neural networks to extract intelligence from a diverse set of sensors and fuses information from this variety of signal sources to identify and track individual vehicles under all environmental conditions with a precision currently unmatched by state-of-the-art systems that use a subset of these signal sources. During Phase I, POC demonstrated DETRAM’s feasibility with a proof-of-concept design that included a concept of operations, systems requirement, systems design, data management platform, and prototype demonstration that successfully extracted accurate trajectories by fusing data streams from a camera and a radar. In Phase II, POC will optimize the DETRAM prototype to perform field operational tests in coordination with a state or local highway agency and demonstrate it at Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center or elsewhere.
