AUGUST 31--Bitflow (Woburn, MA; www.bitflow.com) and Logical Solutions (Milford, CT; www.thinklogical.com) exhibited at the National Rural ITS 2004 Conference (Duluth, MN) and demonstrated several technologies to the growing intelligent-transportation-systems market.
Bitflow's ImageWarp real-time tracking script was designed to track differences from a known background image. The detected differences are highlighted by a rectangular box in which the contents of each box was processed in real-time with a Sobel edge filter and overlayed with the box's height and width. In addition, each detected box was sent to a separate live window after zooming in by 200% offering a nonprocessed closeup of the detected object. This software capability could easily be adapted to early detection systems, surveillance systems as well as intersection and pedestrian monitoring applications.

A second ImageWarp real-time tracking demonstration was presented using a USB camera and a laptop computer. The Video window is live video from a USB camera. The Image #2 window is a real-time capture with the detected object inside the green box, processed with the Sobel and labeled with the dimensions. Image #3 is the unprocessed detected object zoomed to 200%. In addition, there is slider control for sensitivity and the minimum size of the detected object.
