This study suggests a method of detecting the still object, which becomes a cause of danger within the crossroad. The Inverse Perspective Transform was performed in order to make the object size consistent by being inputted the real-time image from CCTV that is installed within the crossroad. It established the detection area in the image with the perspective transform and generated the adaptative background image with the use of the moving information on object. The detection of the stop object was detected the candidate region of the stop object by using the background-image differential method. To grasp the appearance of truth on the detected candidate region, a method is proposed that uses the gradient information on image and EHD(Edge Histogram Descriptor). To examine performance of the suggested algorithm, it experimented by storing the images in the commuting time and the daytime through DVR, which is installed on the cross street. As a result of experiment, it could efficiently detect the stop vehicle within the detection region inside the crossroad. The processing speed is shown in 13~18 frame per second according to the area of the detection region, thereby being judged to likely have no problem about the real-time processing.
