There are an increasing number of high-occupancy-vehicle lanes throughout the world. In these lanes each vehicle is required to have two or more occupants. These laws are currently manually enforced. This paper presents a new system for automating the enforcement process, using color image segmentation techniques to find the windshield area, and face detection to count the number of occupants within a vehicle.
