Automatic detection of vehicles data has been widely used in the area of traffic surveillance system where the efficient traffic management along with safety is the main concept. This project depicts the count of the vehicles present at that particular area of traffic using the data provided by the satellite. The satellite captures the image of the particular traffic junction. This satellite image is further processed in order to find the count of the vehicles. The image contains unwanted objects along with the vehicles. For that image, apply thresholding techniques to detect the vehicles and such that unwanted objects whose gray scale values are below the threshold level will be removed. The designed system converts the satellite captured image into gray scale image. This gray scale image is then converted into binary image. It is proposed to develop a unique algorithm for detecting the vehicles using thresholding techniques. If the intensity value is greater than the threshold value, 8-bit of value 255 is assigned else 8-bit of value 0 will be assigned. The edges of the objects present in the binary image will be obtained. Noise will be reduced using filters. The bright areas which are bounded will shows the vehicles present in the image. Boundary formation is useful for detecting the objects in the image. Using Blob detection method, the properties of the objects are depicted and using the Moore Boundary tracking algorithm the boundaries of the objects are detected. Detecting the vehicles and finding the count of the vehicles are the objectives of this project.
