In order to obtain the average speed of vehicle at plane intersection on urban traffic, an algorithm of average speed measurement based on the video is proposed in this study. Video is captured against the motion of the vehicle by the camera which is mounted on the cross bar at the intersection. The detection zone is set between the stop line and the pedestrian road. These methods of background difference, shadow removal and region filling of morphology are applied to detection zone. Then, method of vertical projection is employed to the obtained binary image, judging whether the vehicles exist in the detection region by vertical projection diagram and calculating the total frames that the vehicle drive into and depart out the detection region. The instantaneous velocity is obtained by using the frame rate of the camera and the width of the detection region and then to calculate the mean velocity.
