Road traffic surveys determine the number and type of vehicles passing by a specific point over a certain period of time. The manual estimation of the number and type of vehicles from images captured by a camera is the most commonly used method. However, this method has the disadvantage of requiring high amounts of manpower and cost. Recently, methods of automating traffic volume surveys using sensors or deep learning have been widely attempted, but there is the disadvantage that a person must finally manually verify the data in order to ensure that they are reliable. In order to address these shortcomings, we propose a method for efficiently conducting road traffic volume surveys and obtaining highly reliable data. The proposed method detects vehicles on the road from CCTV (Closed-circuit television) images and classifies vehicle types using deep learning or a similar method. After that, it automatically informs the user of candidates with a high probability of error and provides a method for efficient verification. The performance of the proposed method was tested using a data set collected by an actual road traffic survey company. As a result, we proved that our method shows better accuracy than the previous method. The proposed method can reduce the labor and cost in road traffic volume surveys, and increase the reliability of the data due to more accurate results. View Full-Text
