Lecture consists of a short explanation of the LBP feature extraction and classification algorithms, architecture and experimental results of the proposed system for vehicle detection and tracking from the video footage. Dataset used for the classifier learning process is obtained from the video footage made by Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences and video footage obtained from Toyota Motor Europe website. Testing of the system is made on a video footage of Zagreb bypass.



Kristian Kovačić was born on 16th January 1986 in Zagreb, Croatia. He received his bachelor and master degree from University of Zagreb, Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences (UNIZG­ FTTS) in 2011 and 2013, respectively. During his education he showed particular interest in programming, image processing and 3D graphics applications. Currently he is employed at the Department of intelligent transport systems UNIZG­FTTS as a research engineer on the project VISTA. His research interests are related to application of computer vision in transport and traffic sciences, particularly vehicle detection and tracking, origin­destination matrix estimation using license plate recognition and measurement of traffic parameters.
