Vehicle Occupancy Detection Corporation installed its prototype in Caltrans District 12 (Orange County) in August, 2013.
VODC’s technology reached 96% accuracy when counting multiple occupants, regardless of whether their face was partially obscured, hooded, reclining or mostly covered with hair looking sideways, in the front or the back seats.
|Passenger face obscured – hand raised||Hooded passenger|
|Reclining passenger||Passenger’s face covered with hair||Infant in rear seat counted|
|Rear seat passenger easily counted||Infant partially covered in rear seat||Partially visible rear seat occupant|
