Past Projects

BNA Traffic Mapper

January 2021

Description

The Traffic Hotspot project is a collaboration between Mac AI and the Beasley Neighbourhood Association of Hamilton. The project will be a website with live data consisting of the interactions of different types of vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians, and mobility devices and the surrounding environment using YOLOv5 and Deep SORT for the tracking and an IoT Raspberry Pi for the image capture.

FishEye

April 2020

Contributors

Victor BlagaAndrew Garven

Description

FishEye is a fourth-year thesis project undertaken by Victor Blaga and Andrew Garven, and currently being implemented in McMaster’s ABEL lab to automatically detect and track experimental footage. Specifically, the program uses YOLOv3 to track fish behavioural assays in real time, relieving undergraduate students of an otherwise mundane and time-consuming task.
