  • Patent number: 10616570
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes an acquiring unit and a determining unit. For example, the acquiring unit acquires an imaging image captured by a camera mounted on a vehicle and registers the acquired imaging image in drive recorder information. When a vanishing point is detected from the imaging image, the determining unit determines that the imaging direction of the imaging device is normal such that the front of the vehicle is normally imaged. When the vanishing point is not detected from the acquired the imaging image, the determining unit determines that the imaging direction of the imaging device is abnormal such that the front of the vehicle is not normally imaged.
