The Georgia Department of Transportation operates and manages several HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle) corridors in the Atlanta area. One common problem highlighted by many managers, however, is the lack of a reliable way of counting vehicle occupants. To address this, the Transportation research group is continuing research based on a previous GDOT research project conducted in the late 1990s titled “Computer Assisted Infrared Imaging System for Determining Vehicle Occupancy,” also known as GVOS or Georgia Vehicle Occupancy System. The resumed work seeks to develop a system to provide GDOT the capability to monitor the level of compliance by users of HOV lanes.
