Speed measurement using webcam

If you ever wanted to know the speed of moving vehicles in your neighborhood, well, now there is a cheap and simple solution to find that out. It turns out that it is enough to point your webcam to the street and start the appropriate software!

In order to measure the speed we need two parameters: time and distance traveled. Here we have a solution that uses web camera and Python script to figure out both of those parameters by finding difference in pixels of consequent images and calculate the speed of moving object that is detected as moving.

Be sure to read the entire article on the next page and to take look at the Python script that does the job!
