Abstract :

The paper presents infrared sensor based Portable Automatic Vehicle Classification System. The Infrared transmitters (Light Emitting Diodes) and receivers are installed on vertical poles which are installed on opposite sides of road lane and aligned in such a way that each infrared transmitter is directed to only one infrared receiver. The transmitter and receiver arrays are controlled and synchronized by hardware designed on FPGA. The output of infrared receiver array captured by FPGA gives the side profile of the vehicle passing through lane, which is used by system designed on same FPGA to calculate vehicle parameters such as height, length and number of axles etc. These physical parameters are used by classification block designed on same FPGA to perform classification of the vehicle. The system when tested can classify the vehicles with more than 90% of accuracy.
