The main goal of this work is to present a mathematical method for the detection of vehicles on highways. To achieve this goal, we propose an approach based on a coupled method between the watershed transformation and the topological gradient. The HSI (Hue, Saturation, and Intensity) color space is adapted in our method. Different propositions to treat the given problem are presented in this work and a survey of some approaches based on both the topological gradient and a watershed technic is
