The goal of this project is to replace the existing analog video collection system on the roof of Pacific Park Plaza (PPP) with a digital one. This video collection system is part of the Berkeley Highway Laboratory (BHL) testbed. It records video of traffic on a continuous one-kilometer section of Interstate 80 (I-80) near Emeryville, CA. This section of I-80 features on-ramps, off-ramps, and weaving zones. The video of interactions between vehicles can be fed to a machine-vision system, which generates vehicle trajectories to be used in a variety of traffic studies. The video itself can also be used for both human and machine-vision based verification of loop data.
