Paper Title:
Visual Detection of Moving Vehicles Ahead Based on the Characteristics
  Abstract

Machine vision perception technology is widely used in the vehicle’s active safety system. It provides more immediate and correct information of road and vehicles around, in which inspection of moving vehicle ahead is one of the important items. A method of inspection fused of detection of the shadow under the vehicle and symmetry of the vehicle’s tail is presented in this paper. At first, a region of interest is selected according to the lane lines. Then, the shadow can be detected with grayscale histogram in the region of interest and a suspected area of vehicle is obtained by expanding the shadow with empirical proportion. At last, the vehicle ahead is further affirmed by calculating the symmetry of such characteristic at its tail as grayscale value, taillight and the edges. Experimental results prove that this method can well solve the actual problems of vehicle detection.
