Image Comparison
« on: May 15, 2017, 01:18:02 pm »

So I had a question abut comparing images. Let's start of with a quick background on my project:

I want to figure out when the lowest traffic density on a bridge is ( I want to know when it will most likely be empty for the longest amount of time ).

To start I have a traffic cam, It will give me a static image every 10-20 seconds. Project is in C# at the moment.
So I grab a new image from the cam every 20 seconds and store it.

Not the next part is where I am looking for some ideas. What is a reliable way to analyze the images in order to answer my question.

My thought was get an image of when the bridge is empty ( no traffic ) and then compare it to the other images, a higher match means less traffic. Never done this before so just a theory. However it would be nice for it to work all times of the day, night included.

"Everything will be gone long before me. When the first living thing was born, I was here, waiting. When the last living thing dies, my job is finished. I'll put the chairs on the tables, turn out the lights and lock the universe behind me when I leave."
