Traffic monitoring is one of the key challenges in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). In this paper, we propose to build a crowdsourcing application for traffic monitoring. The novelty of the proposed approach is that visual data is collected to enable automatic event inference with the recent advance in Computer Vision. The challenge is that mobile devices are not capable of handling visual task processing in high accuracy. We propose to build a networked system so that mobile devices can offload data via available wireless access interfaces (e.g., 4G LTE, WiFi, DSRC) to edge servers, e.g., GENI Rack. We plan to use the testbed at Kettering University to validate the proposed approach.
