Specifying object properties to be detected

1 view (last 30 days)
Hello everyone. I am currently working on a project to count the number of vehicles on a road from video using video processing by blob detection. The code I have can only detect cars. But I need to detect other types of vehicle as well. I want to how to specify a particular object's properties such as a van or truck to be detected in matlab. Please guide me. Thanks in advance. Regards

I am not aware of any country where the vehicle types are clearly defined. Especially not countries where rickshaws are common enough to be worth mentioning: in those countries there is typically a lot of personal innovation that blurs the lines badly.

You can use other code or relax the discrimination criteria. The usual way is to
  1. detect everything that moves (that's what it sounds like you want), and then to
  2. examine each moving blob to determine which are cars and which are not, then
  3. just keep the cars and throw out everything else.
It sounds like your code does all three steps because you said "The code I have can only detect cars." You need to modify it so that it does not do steps 2 and 3.
