 Traffic flow statistics, as an important part of intelligent transportation system, usually requires manual statistics, which is time-consuming and labor-intensive. In order to save manual labor and improve the statistical efficiency, this paper is based on the strategy of YOLOv5+DeepSORT to count the aerial traffic flow by UAV, and the results show that the statistical accuracy of this method is close to that of manual statistics, which has high practical value.
