Abstract

See full text

The present invention is directed to an automated vehicle identification and tracking system. The system includes at least one area monitoring system that has a plurality of imaging units disposed in an area. Each imaging unit is configured to capture an image of a monitored vehicle disposed in the area. A control system is remotely coupled to the at least one area monitoring system. The control system is configured to classify and track the monitored vehicle based on anonymous vehicle feature data extracted from the captured image. The system can assimilate eyewitness input concerning a vehicle based on anonymous vehicle feature data, including time and location of the sighting of the target vehicle, wherein the system can effectively identify the current location of candidate target vehicles within the monitored area.
