Abstract
We describe the design and implementation of a vision
based Intermodal Train Monitoring System(ITMS) for ex-
tracting various features like length of gaps in an inter-
modal(IM) train which can later be used for higher level
inferences. An intermodal train is a freight train consisting
of two basic types of loads - containers and trailers. Our
system first captures the video of an IM train, and applies
image processing and machine learning techniques devel-
