A vision-based vehicle classifier uses machine learning techniques to identify cars and trucks in video images.

Continental Automotive is building driver assistance systems to help drivers safely change lanes, merge, avoid obstacles, and perform similar maneuvers. NREC’s vehicle classifier will be part of Continental’s future active safety systems. The camera from this system scans the road ahead, looking for other vehicles. NREC's classifier examines these images and uses highly efficient machine learning techniques to quickly and efficiently find areas that contain vehicles.
