Car detection. Best way. Like FreeFlow

Hi Guys,

I want to write a software where it will have a IP camera as input and I need to detect cars and take a snapshot of the front of the car and then send this image to my OCR. I already have a OCR library to integrate to my code.

The cars will be passing by a detection area and I should be able to take the snapshot. How do I do that ? template matching with every frame of the video ? How do I add more then 1 template to compare on each frame ?

Sometimes the car will be passing fast and sometimes slow. I need something similar to the freeflow. See this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Kfp7EFmT98

I already have the OCR which needs a image as input. So now I need to find a way to do the detection.

Thanks
