  • Publication number: 20170116488
    Abstract: Method for identifying an incoming vehicle on the basis of images acquired by one or more video-cameras mounted on a vehicle, comprising processing the images in order to identify light spots corresponding to the vehicle lamps, including performing a multi-scale processing procedure to extract bright spots areas from the images and maximum values of the bright spots areas. The method includes tracking positive regions corresponding to the bright spots and independently tracking the bright spots themselves. The tracking of the positive regions is preceded by a classification procedure including generating candidate regions to be classified, and training multiple classifiers, depending on an aspect ratio of the candidate region.
