Many automated driver monitoring technologies have been proposed to enhance vehicle and road safety. Most existing solutions involve the use of specialized embedded hardware, primarily in high-end automobiles. This paper explores driver assistance methods that can be implemented on mobile devices such as a consumer smartphone, thus offering a level of(More)
Face detection using local successive mean quantization transform (SMQT) features and the sparse network of winnows (SNoW) classifier has received interest in the computer vision community due to its success under varying illumination conditions. Recent work has also demonstrated the effectiveness of this classification technique for character recognition(More)
Due to the high volume of traffic on modern roadways, transportation agencies have proposed High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes and High Occupancy Tolling (HOT) lanes to promote car pooling. However, enforcement of the rules of these lanes is currently performed by roadside enforcement officers using visual observation. Manual roadside enforcement is known(More)
Commercial motor vehicles are mandated to display a valid U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) identification number on the side of the vehicle. Automatic recognition of USDOT numbers is of interest to government agencies for the efficient enforcement and management of the commercial trucks. Near infrared (NIR) cameras installed on the side of the(More)
Recently, sparsity based classification has been applied to video anomaly detection. A linear model is assumed over video features (e.g. trajectories) such that the feature representation of a new event is written as a sparse linear combination of existing feature representations in the dictionary. Sparsity based video anomaly detection shows promise but(More)
