Abstract
We propose an innovative Pedestrian Automotive System for Enforcement and Safety (PASES) that combines commercial-off-the-shelf video or camera components and state-of-the-art microwave(radar) systems with sophisticated software that will not only provide more effective enforcement through effective evidentiary information, but will also enable predictive actions based on vehicle and pedestrian behavior. The radar provides highly accurate range and velocity information towards the sensor while the video provides highly accurate cross-range data. The combination of the two sensors in the proposed system is more advanced than the current microwave pedestrian sensors that do not detect non-moving objects and have very limited range. The fusion of these data enables the most Davidrobust tracking of multiple objects possible, with the motion of each object fully characterized, which in turn enables the development of rules based predictive actions.
