This paper describes a novel method for detecting vehicles on a highway using two visual features: color and texture. Our method consists of a segmentation process computed on the L*u*v* color space and a texture feature extraction procedure based on Dual-Tree Complex Wavelet Transform. We also apply a denoising process using morphological operations to build a background model and make possible the detection of the vehicles in the scene.
