An aircraft is most at risk for an accident when it's still on the ground - when taxiing before takeoff or after landing. This is because traffic throughput on the ground is limited by inadequate airport infrastructures and is often incapacitated during conditions of poor visibility. The INTERVUSE project, funded by the European Commission, aims to address these problems by developing a cost-effective artificial intelligence system based on a network of intelligent digital cameras. The system uses image-processing techniques to detect traffic and correlates and fuses data to generate a synthetic ground-situation display.
