Possible approach you can implement

  1. For your video input, grab single frames
  2. Calculate keypoints in every frame
  3. Match keypoints in subsequent frames and calculate the optical flow
  4. Relate the optical flow values to actual speed values (will need some kind of calibration for the car I guess)
