In this paper we propose a new method for vehicle position detection at a dark place at night using stereo slit camera and vertical objects. Vertical objects used in this research were fluorescents placed vertically to the earth. The way to detect vehicle position is very simple. At first, we installed two slit cameras on the left side of the vehicle and took in the images of vertical objects. Secondly, we computed the central positions of their images from two images. Finally, we detected a position between the vehicle and the vertical objects. As a result of applying our method to the experimental test, position detecting became simple.
