Deep Visual Re-Identification with Confidence

    Transportation systems often rely on understanding the flow of vehicles or pedestrian. From traffic monitoring at the city scale, to commuters in train terminals, recent progress in sensing technology make it possible to use cameras to better understand the demand, i.e., better track moving agents (e.g., vehicles and pedestrians). Whether the cameras are mounted on drones, vehicles, or fixed in the built environments, they inevitably remain scatter … Read more


    Perceiving Traffic from Aerial Images

    Drones or UAVs, equipped with different sensors, have been deployed in many places especially for urban traffic monitoring or last-mile delivery. It provides the ability to control the different aspects of traffic given real-time obeservations, an important pillar for the future of transportation and smart cities. With the increasing use of such machines, many previous state-of-the-art object detectors, who have achieved high performance on front facing cameras, are being used on UAV datasets. When applied to high-resolution aerial images … Read more


    Learning nuisances to track pedestrians in autonomous vehicles

    Autonomous vehicles rely on an accurate perception module. One of the fundamental challenges is to efficiently track pedestrians surrounding a vehicle to anticipate risky situations. Over the past decades, researchers have formulated the tracking problem as a data association one where they proposed various representations aiming for invariance to nuisances such as viewpoint changes, body deformation, object occlusion, and illumination changes. However, these methods still suffer … Read more
