At Lund University an automated video analysis system is being developed that can be applied for studying the behaviour of road users in complex traffic environments. It is stressed that system must be capable of handling all the categories of road users, i.e. vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists. Common problems like detection and tracking of moving objects, occlusion by foreground objects, ground-plane co-ordinates estimation, smoothing of the scattered data and estimation of speed and acceleration profiles are discussed and some solution proposed.
