Height of Driver’s Eye and Taillight Measurements from a Camera-Based Roadside Setup

Abstract : This paper presents an approach that can be used to measure height of driver's eyes and rear position lamps from a video, i.e., two important metrics used to set sight distance standards. This data plays an important role in the definition of geometric design of highways and streets. Our method automatically estimates the camera pose with respect to the road. It then requires selecting two points to obtain the height. New vehicles tend to be higher and larger. Consequently, this information shoud be updated. This approach has been applied on a large panel of vehicles. Our method was evaluated on vehicle height measurements. Our results suggest that our method achieves less than 1.8 cm (0.7 in) mean absolute error. Our experiments show an increase in the height of driver's eyes and taillights.
