Sameh A. Napoleon got his B.Sc. in the field of Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering, Tanta University, Egypt in 1999. He received the M.Sc. and the Ph.D. from Tanta University in 2006 and 2012 respectively. The objectives of the M.Sc. thesis were to test performance of different types of voice coders over ATM and IP networks and to optimize the QoS for voice traffic via optimizing and developing forward packet loss recovery techniques. His Ph.D. introduces an efficient and applicable replacement to GPS for positioning in indoor environments by using the WLAN access points to find the accurate position of any mobile device in that special multipath environment. His research interests are localization and tracking techniques and sensor networks.

In this paper, an enhancement based traffic video has been proposed in the state of the art of computer vision. The main target is to develop a decision making criteria for removing the most probable video degradations. Such traffic video degradations would have an adverse impact on the transportation system. In order to establish the appropriate analysis, three types of video degradations have been added to the test video; salt and pepper noise, Gaussian noise, and speckle noise, we have simulated rainy, fog, and darkness conditions for the traffic video. First of all, back ground subtraction and Kalman filter techniques have been used for detecting and tracking vehicles respectively. By using such algorithms, it would be easily to estimate average number of assigned tracks which express the efficacy of correct detection and prediction of vehicles in each frame.  Furthermore, video degradations would be applied in order to studying its effect on the average number of assigned tracks which would be deviated than noiseless video. Spatial filtering system has been applied to state the most suitable filter mask which satisfy the least deviation in the average number of assigned tracks. Experimental results show that median filter satisfies the least deviation in all cases of video degradations.
