Detection and tracking of vehicles based on colour probability density

Vehicle monitoring is a very important part in the intelligent transportation systems towards real-time monitoring of intersection traffic condition, the dynamic traffic incident detection and traffic parameter extraction. This paper proposes a vehicle tracking method based on mean shift. During the detection period, tracking objects of vehicles are constructed. The current vehicle position is predicted from the target area of former frame. In the candidate area of the target image, foreground area mask is adopted as a condition whether a pixel is selected; this makes the colour probability density to more accurately reflect the characteristics of the vehicle, and avoids the background region’s influence on the mean shift iterations. Experiments show that this method can effectively detect the position of the vehicle, and provides an effective vehicle tracking method in the intelligent transportation system.
