Author Affiliations +
A method of estimating vehicle height, width and speed from images obtained by a monocular camera is presented. The method is based on the detection and tracking of vehicle license plates. The distance between the license plate and the camera is calculated from its pixel coordinates. The method makes no assumptions about the camera mounting height. The computational cost and the processing time are reduced by using tilt measurements provided by a microelectromechanical sensor and field-of-view data obtained prior to installation.
