Abstract—A Vehicle counter is a device used for counting the number of vehicles that enters and exit (entrance of an organization). Most of the time, this system is used near the entrance of a building, so that the total number of vehicles entering in, can be recorded. Vehicle counting system is important in marketing research (Road traffic management) and parking area. Some sensors are used to count the vehicles with different advantage, drawbacks and accuracies such as laser beam, infra-red sensor and thermal sensor. But we design a system that detects, identify and counts the vehicles using a Stationary IP Camera. The objective is to monitor the activities at the entrance of the building (gate) for detecting and counting the vehicles that entering in. It is based on the establishment of correspondences between regions and vehicles, as the vehicles move through the image sequence. We use Background subtraction, which improves the adaptive background mixture model and makes the system to learn faster, more accurate and effective to changing environment. The system is robust because it identifies the vehicles at intersection by rejecting the background and it tracks the vehicles over a specific period of time.

Keywords—Vehicle, image sequence, background mixture model.
