Abstract

Real-time intelligent video-based traffic surveillance applications play an important role in intelligent transportation systems. To reduce false alarms as well as to increase computational efficiency, robust road segmentation for automated Region of Interest (RoI) detection becomes a popular focus in the research community. A novel Adaptive Bidirectional Detection (ABD) of region-of-interest method is presented in this paper to automatically segment the roads with bidirectional traffic flows into two regions of interest. Specifically, a foreground segmentation method is first applied along with the flood-fill algorithm to estimate the road regions. Then the Lucas-Kanade's optical flow algorithm is utilized to track and divide the estimated road into regions of interest in real-time. Experimental results using a dataset of real traffic videos illustrate the feasibility of the proposed method for automatically determining the RoIs in real-time.
