Estimating Traffic Density Using Transformer Decoders


We propose a combined particle-based density prediction model consisting of three components: trajectory prediction for existing particles, entering particle prediction, and iterative sampling. At initialization, the combined model takes in a set of trajectories for trajectory prediction and a sequence of observation vectors for entering particle prediction. Then, the iterative sampling module generates the density prediction for the next time instance. It will also sample a pool of particles and pass on their trajectories to the next trajectory prediction model for future density prediction.
