At present, detection method for the target vehicle based on monocular vision sensor uses the whole vehicle as targets. The automobile anti-collision technology proposed in this paper adopts monocular vision sensor for automobile measurement based on vehicle license plate cooperative target. Monocular vision sensor has advantages of good real-time performance and low cost. The technique can improve the detection capability of vehicle collision avoidance warning systems. In addition to the target vehicle positioning, it can also realize attitude determination. This technology eliminates the limits of road surface roughness and fluctuation. This paper designs the realization scheme of collision warning system based on monocular vision sensor from the automobile license plate cooperative target. Technology roadmap of automobile collision warning system is given. In this paper, license plate frame location is as the research background. The paper presents an analytic solution of positioning method for the license plate frame image. The method uses four vertex characteristics of license plate frame image to locate. Positioning speed of the method is fast. And it has a unique solution. This method can be used to positioning for the license plate frame. Simulation experiment is done for the collision warning location. The simulation results show that this method can locate the position for license plate frame image. License plate is regular shape, uniform, with identity recognition function markers on the automobile body. In the previous research on automotive collision warning and intelligent vehicle, we have not seen the research methods similar to the method introduced in this paper. The research enriches automobile anti-collision technology and theory of intelligent vehicle technology. It can also provide an auxiliary method for navigation and obstacle avoidance research for unmanned vehicle. It has certain scientific significance. Vehicle collision warning system can help the driver judgment, prompting warning, improving driving safety, and has broad application prospects.
