Hi Team,

I want to detect the speed of other vehicles moving in front of me in the same direction. Is it possible to detect the speed using open CV. If yes what is specific algorithms or open CV's methods and functions should I use to achieve my requirement. The program should process only automobiles and eliminate other elements on the road side such dividers, poles, tress etc.

The short answer is Yes. The long answer is, this is a very complex problem you should probably start reading up on object tracking techniques. Plus you haven't told us what sensors you're using, mono camera, stereo cameras, LIDAR a combination?

Apologies for the delay in reply. I want to use the normal mono camera similar to the ones used in mobiles, webcams etc. I'm thinking of comparing frames at regular intervals of time. Based on the difference in object size in the two frames I want to calculate/estimate the speed and distance. Does my method yield good results?

Thanks, Arun
