This paper introduces a general active-learning framework for robust on-road vehicle recognition and tracking. This framework takes a novel active-learning approach to building vehicle-recognition and tracking systems. A passively trained recognition system is built using conventional supervised learning. Using the query and archiving interface for active learning (QUAIL), the passively trained vehicle-recognition system is evaluated on an independent real-world data set, and informative samples are queried and archived to perform selective sampling. A second round of learning is then performed to build an active-learning-based vehicle recognizer. Particle filter tracking is integrated to build a complete multiple-vehicle tracking system. The active-learning-based vehicle-recognition and tracking (ALVeRT) system has been thoroughly evaluated on static images and roadway video data captured in a variety of traffic, illumination, and weather conditions. Experimental results show that this framework yields a robust efficient on-board vehicle recognition and tracking system with high precision, high recall, and good localization.
