Abstract

The ability to detect shadows Is a critical feature of any Intelligent transportation system (ITS). The Improper handling of shadows can be the cause of erroneous conclusions in traffic analysis. Because vision-based ITS applications are becoming more popular, It la Important to minimize the fillets of shadows. Here, we present a novel method for shadow handling in a sequences of Images, fallowing recent work motivated by studies of the statistics of natural Images, we show that this new method Is a reliable detector of shadows and can be easily Implemented In real time.
