When using the video detection technology we can gather much more information about traffic rather than using other traffic identification sensors. The conducted research has shown that most the most common video detection algorithms have a lot of weaknesses. Some weaknesses are related to weather conditions: strong lightning, rain, fog, darkness, and other interferences. Other weaknesses are related to physical interferences, such as shaking of the camera, interferences in video transmition etc. It is possible to avoid the interferences caused by unwanted weather conditions by using IR cameras. Recently the application of thermo-vision technologies becomes more popular in Lithuania in such fields as energetics, mechanics, and electronics. Transport management can be one of the fields where thermo-vision technologies may be applied. Ill. 11, bibl. 4 (in English; abstracts in English, Russian and Lithuanian).
