How to count traffic - vehicle sensing

Video vehicle detection - video analyticsUsing CCTV and intelligent counting units, a video vehicle traffic counting system achieves over 98% accuracy in all conditions: day and night in rain, sun and snow. Cars are counted as they pass through the counting zone One camera covers several exits of a junction. At four-way junctions, for example, the system provides multi-directional counts for vehicles turning north, south, east or west and coming from any direction - making the system very cost-effective.
