Final Year Project on Vision-Based Adaptive Traffic Control wins Gold at NBQSA 2020

Team AbruTech of the University of Moratuwa won the Gold Award for Tertiary student category in the NBQSA National ICT Awards 2020 for their final year project on "Vision-Based Adaptive Traffic Control". They have now been nominated for the APICTA (Asia Pacific) awards to be held in Malaysia this year. National Best Quality Software Awards (NBQSA), which has been held by the British Computer Society for the past 22 years, evaluates software-based projects in different categories and recognizes the best ones at national and global levels. The team AbruTech consists of Abarajithan G, Rukshan Wickramasinghe, Tehara Fonseka, and Chinthana Wimalasuriya from the Dept. of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering was supervised by Prof. Rohan Munasinghe and co-supervised by Prof. Saman Bandara. The project was funded by the World Bank through an AHEAD grant. A patent for this product is under review at NIPO, and the system is being developed into an adaptive traffic control system by a final year student group. The award-winning algorithm has demonstrated a remarkable ability in identification, classification, tracking, and counting vehicles very accurately, even in low light conditions. Already there is a demand by the RDA, and several commercial and academic partners to develop this into a commercial traffic analytics tool.
