Abstract

In this paper, we present a transportation video coding and wireless transmission system specifically tailored to automated vehicle tracking applications. By taking into account the video characteristics and the lossy nature of the wireless channels, we propose video preprocessing and error control approaches to enhance tracking performance while conserving bandwidth resources and computational power at the transmitter. Compared with current state-of-the-art H.264-based implementations, our system is shown to yield over 80% bitrate savings for comparable tracking accuracy.
