    Sensor fusion for vehicle classification and speed estimation using cameras,2D lidars and raspberry pi.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Cheap and reliable speed estimation is needed in our cities. This project will not only provide that but the hardware installed can be upscaled to create a network.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Smart and reliable Speed Estimation modules normally cost a lot. Since Independently, a single camera or a single 2D Lidar cannot estimate speed of a vehicle(two widely available sensors), special modules had to be created for speed estimation.
How will the solution works
    This project involves intelligent fusion of data from an optical camera and a 2D lidar for the purpose of speed estimation. SVM (Support Vector Machine) classifier will be used to classify vehicles and retrieve it’s length. This will be used in conjunction with a 2D lidar to estimate the speed of a vehicle. Extrinsic calibration will be used to obtain the rigid relationship between the two different sensors. Rasperry-pi will be used.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our project provides smart speed sensing functionality while retaining it's cost comparable to that of a speed gun.
