#245: UA-DETRAC 2017: Report of AVSS2017 & IWT4S challenge on advanced traffic monitoring


The rapid advances of transportation infrastructure have led to a dramatic increase in the demand for smart system- s capable of monitoring traffic and street safety. Funda- mental to these applications are a community-based evalua- tion platform and benchmark for object detection and multi- object tracking. To this end, we organize the AVSS2017 Challenge on Advanced Traffic Monitoring, in conjunc- tion with the International Workshop on Traffic and Street Surveillance for Safety and Security (IWT4S), to evalu- ate the state-of-the-art object detection and multi-object tracking algorithms in the relevance of traffic surveillance. Submitted algorithms are evaluated using the large-scale UA-DETRAC benchmark and evaluation protocol. The benchmark, the evaluation toolkit and the algorithm per- formance are publicly available from the website http: //detrac-db.rit.albany.edu.
