The paper proposes an efficient method for training a neural network to count moving objects in a video, while another neural network concurrently prepares a labeled dataset for the first one. The detection, tracking, and counting of objects is crucial for effective Intelligence Transportation Systems (ITS), which should reduce congestion and recognize traffic offenders on highways and in urban areas. Creation of labeled data for training a neural network is one of the essential prerequisites for successful application of supervised machine learning. In this paper, the experimental results of the automatic labeling and counting of vehicles under real world conditions are shown. The method shows that by using the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN), the computing power and speed-up time for training a Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) with a Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) cell for counting moving objects can be decreased.
