Pedestrian Countdown

You won't find yourself racing the clock on such a great task. Scholars use video information to predict the time left on a crosswalk signal after a pedestrian crosses. The video shows the time left on the counter, and individuals must determine the speed of the walker and distance left to walk from the video presentation.
