  • Real-time video analysis with broad applicability
  • Detection and severity quantification of conflict events
  • Minimal computational resources required


This technology functions by obtaining a sequence of real-time images from current traffic monitoring systems. The video analytics algorithm identifies vehicles and detects conflict events based on a pre-determined maximum spatiotemporal separation threshold and current vehicle coordinates and velocities. This system provides accurate, reliable, and timely warnings that facilitate traffic safety and efficiency.

Importantly, this technology allows the users to be proactive, instead of reactive, to dangerous traffic patterns. The analytics report on collision probability and severity, taking into account spatiotemporal separation and vehicular velocities.
