Abstract

The increased use of digital video and image processing technology has paved the way for extending the traffic enforcement applications to a wider range of violations as well as making the enforcement process more efficient. Automated traffic enforcement has mainly been applied towards speed and red light violations detection. In recent years, there has been an extension to other violation detection tasks such as seat-belt usage, tailgating and toll payment violations. In the recent years, automated driver cell phone usage violation detection methods have aroused considerable interest since it results in higher mortality rates than the intoxicated driving. In this study, we propose a novel automated technique towards driver’s phone usage violation detection using deep learning algorithms. Using an existing license plate recognition camera system placed on an overhead gantry, installed on a highway, real world images are captured during day and night time. We performed experiments using more than 5900 real world images and achieved an overall accuracy of 90.8 % in the driver cell phone usage violation detection task.
