This paper presents an automatic method to estimate vehicle velocity and determine the number of vehicles per lane using rectified images. This approach requires the knowledge of two lengths on the ground plane and can be applied to highway scenarios that possess fairly straight lanes in areas near the camera. A scale factor is determined, in order to ascertain vehicle velocity in the sought units. This scale factor associates distances traveled on the image plane with distances on the ground… CONTINUE READING
