Improvements in video analytics has led to their increasing use in highway traffic analysis, planning and control. However, due to the compute intensive nature of video analytics and the unique data requirements derived from the number of application specific algorithms, it is impractical to collocate the analytics processing engines near the traffic.
Instead, a solution that captures, records and provides the required footage to cloud based computer vision servers is viewed to be ideal. This application demonstrates Advanced Micro Peripherals products serving video footage on demand. Analytics engines access the cloud based video providing traffic engineers with relevant data for their traffic studies reducing congestion and vehicular pollution.
