We present a two-layer night time vehicle detector in this work. At the first layer, vehicle headlight detection [1, 2, 3] is applied to find areas (bounding boxes) where the possible pairs of headlights locate in the image, the Haar feature based AdaBoost framework is then applied to detect the vehicle front. This approach has achieved a very promising performance for vehicle detection at night time. Our results show that the proposed algorithm can obtain a detection rate of over 90% at a very low false positive rate (1:5%). Without any code optimization, it also performs at a faster speed compared to the standard Haar feature based AdaBoost approach [4]. © 2009 IEEE.
