Abstract:
    Vehicle Spy is a deep-learning based Vehicle Re-Identification system that can recognize or re-identify vehicles from across multiple cameras, aimed to help in traffic surveillance and forensics.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    WHO statistics of 2013 depict 20 out of 100000 deaths in Pakistan annually result from traffic accidents, ranking Pakistan 67th globally for road accidents.The case of stolen vehicles and violation of traffic rules is not much different. Our system can aid in improving this state of affairs.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   The law-and-order sector of the government , security agencies and other similar private companies involved in traffic surveillance are the entities that can build on our proposed system to improve their existing vehicle detection and tracking systems.
How will the solution works
    The problem lies in the domain of Computer Vision. To solve the problem, we plan to apply deep learning based techniques. As a first step, the system performs detection of vehicles from videos. And once the vehicles are extracted, we make use of neural networks to automatically extract features and then compare to find the similarity score between different vehicles. If the similarity score exceeds a certain threshold, the vehicles are identified as being the same.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    The solution is different and inovative in the sense that it brings automation in the field of traffic surveillance and forensics. In this sense, our competition is with the manual labour based methods that are employed for this purpose i.e the system must achieve better performance and efficiency.
