Enrico Viarani's Research Activity

The most part of my research activity as a Ph.D. student is about Machine Vision. The particular field of application of MV I investigate, is in order to solve vehicular-traffic problems such as lights timing, trafic surveillance, flow measurements, and related problems.

Some demos:
"Block matching algorithm", it's a way to extract the motion equations from a sequence of frames.
"Vehicle counter", a rough version of a "urban trafic vehicles counter".
"VIL", Virtual Inductive Loop detector.
"Perspective rectification"
