A New Image Processing Algorithm for Vehicle Detection in Enforcement System

The ERP (Electronic Road Pricing) system has now been introduced worldwide to various kinds of roads. The ERP system, however, has been menaced by vehicle users intentionally violating this system. To facilitate the spread use of ERP, a new image processing algorithm has been developed, in which vehicles are detected and identified without depending only on the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) results. This new algorithm is based on the combination of the HOG (Histograms of Oriented Gradients) method and the SVM (Support Vector Machine) method. The new algorithm was successful in achieving high and reliable vehicle detection ratios.
