Sensing for HOV/HOT Lanes Enforcement

Principal Investigator:

  • Nikos Papanikolopoulos, Professor, Computer Science and Engineering


  • Vassilios Morellas, Director, Computer Science and Engineering

Project Summary:

This project is developing a system involving sophisticated hardware and powerful software algorithms to automatically estimate the occupancy of passenger vehicles in high-occupancy vehicle and high-occupancy toll (HOV/HOT) lanes. Results of this research will quantify the performance of the system across different lighting and prevailing traffic conditions as well as assess the integration of the system into a comprehensive HOT/HOV monitoring tool and explore its deployment for law enforcement activities within such facilities.
