Driving a motor vehicle, if road mirror is hard to see, there is a risk of leading to an accident. To avoid such a risk, we attempt to realize a driving assistance system presenting an enlarged image of the road mirror to the driver automatically. This paper shows an algorithm to recognize a road mirror captured by car driving camera in real time. By utilizing the edge information and the color information of a road mirror, the road mirror can be recognized efficiently. In addition, we propose an algorithm for detecting moving objects on the image of the road mirror. Through the preliminary experiment, we demonstrate that practically the road mirror is enlarged and moving object (car) is presented to the user.
