Speed measurement is an important part of the traffic system. In general, the speed measurement system needs to be used in conjunction with a camera system to accomplish speeding and recording of passing vehicles. However, due to the complexity of the environment such as weather and light, the accuracy of the speed and recording is reduced. Traffic speed system based on neural network uses vehicle license plate as characteristic maps, it uses a neural network with improved parameters to identify the license plate and mark the vehicle. Then the monocular vision technology is used to measure the distance of the vehicle running at the unit frame rate, so as to calculate the speed of the vehicle. This system reduces the false detection rate of the license plate, and completes the measurement and record of the speed. In a large number of experiments, the system confirmed that the maximum false positive rate is 2.6%. The system can process 25 images in one second which meet the requirements of real-time and accuracy.
