|This contribution presents overall information about a traffic monitoring system based on image processing which employs an embedded image processing accelerator board. The system uses a set of spatially distributed sensors and video acquisition units interconnected by a computer network (both wired and wireless). The system provides means of traffic rules enforcement as well as gathering of statistical information about the traffic flow and also detects non-standard situations such as traffic jams. Several cities in the Czech Republic use this system to cope with the challenges of contemporary traffic.|
