Abstract

Rear-end collisions are the most common traffic accidents. Technologies, such as collision warning systems, are developed to reduce the risks of rear-end collisions. This study presents a mobile technology using smartphones to detect the leading vehicle, allowing the possibility to make collision warning systems more affordable and portable. This technology uses the rear camera of an Android smartphone to capture images of driving scenes, and then uses advanced computer vision algorithms to detect and track the leading vehicle. This study may have important applications to improve driving safety.
