In this paper, we proposed a video analysis system in a vehicle using Panoramic Angular Lens (PAL) camera. The system consists two parts: one is using a PAL camera which is installed on the top of the vehicle to obtain obstacle position and compute the distance from the vehicle; the other is to configure a PAL camera inside the vehicle, which can provide the driver's face pose and eye status information as well as the driver's viewing scene, then several image algorithm are applied to analyze the status of driver and detect the object in front of the vehicle. Our contribution is that the large field view of PAL camera is well used in the application of Intelligent Transportation System, and to research the vehicle and driver information at the same time with a single panoramic camera. Meanwhile the system was very simple.
