ABSTRACT: International Electronic Machines Corporation (IEM) developed, tested, and validated a unique smart video-based intrusion monitoring system for use at highway-rail grade crossings. The system used both thermal infrared (IR) and visible/near-infrared (NIR) imaging to detect, identify, and evaluate potential obstacles such as cars and people while ignoring inconsequential objects such as blowing paper, shadows, and smaller animals.
