Title: Computer Vision applied to Traffic and Surveillance Problems


In this talk I will talk about applications of computer vision to traffic and surveillance problems.
In traffic applications, I will focus on Driver Assistance Systems (DAS) using embedded cameras, such as Lane Departure Warning Systems (LDWS), camera self-calibration and
road markings extraction and detection. Regarding surveillance, I will talk about multiple pedestrian tracking using static cameras, group detection and classification, and unusual behavior detection in uncrowded and crowded scenes.
