This research proposes a new vehicle speed measuring approach based on image processing technique. This approach is aimed to improve the vehicle speed measuring accuracy at night. Ordinarily, it is difficult to take a clear image at night by using a low profile digital camera. Thus the image based vehicle speed measuring system for dark environment was not developed by now. In this research, the disadvantage of low profile camera is used for speed measuring. By controlling the shutter speed of camera, a bright line comes from the headlamp of a moving vehicle is appeared in the picture. In this work, an algorithm depend on this feature is developed. Experiment result shows a reasonable measuring value.
