research interests

The main focus of the STAR Lab research includesadvanced traffic detection technologies and their applications for safer and more effective traffic operations. Specifically, we have the following research interests:

UAV-based Traffic Detection

We published the following datasets with 20,000 samples in total as a benchmark for UAV-based vehicle detection. In the datasets (in csv format), each row is an image in the size of 20 13. For more details, please refer to our paper [1]. When using this dataset in your research, we will be happy if you cite our paper! (or bring us some self-made pizza)
