Abstract: A harbor traffic monitoring system is necessary for most ports, yet current systems are often not able to detect and receive information from boats without transponders. In this paper we propose a computer vision based monitoring system utilizing the multi-modal properties of a PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) camera with both an optical and thermal sensor in order to detect boats in different lighting and weather conditions. In both domains boats are detected using a YOLOv3 network pretrained on the COCO dataset and retrained using transfer-learning to images of boats in the test environment. The boats are then positioned on the water using ray-casting. The system is able to detect boats with an average precision of 95.53% and 96.82% in the optical and thermal domains, respectively. Furthermore, it is also able to detect boats in low optical lighting conditions, without being trained with data from such conditions, with an average precision of 15.05% and 46.05% in the optical and thermal domain s, respectively. The position estimator, based on a single camera, is able to determine the position of the boats with a mean error of 18.58 meters and a standard deviation of 17.97 meters. (More)
