In this paper, we introduce the concept of personal driving diary. A personal driving diary is a multimedia archive of a person's daily driving experience, describing important driving events of the user with annotated videos. This paper presents an automated system that constructs such multimedia diary by analyzing videos obtained from a vehiclemounted camera. The proposed system recognizes important interactions between the driving vehicle and the others from videos (e.g. accident,

A novel decision tree based activity recognizer that incrementally learns driving events from first-person view videos is designed. The constructed diary enables efficient searching and event-based browsing of video clips, which helps the user to retrieve videos of dangerous situations and analyze his/her driving habits statistically. Our experiment confirms that the proposed system reliably generates driving diaries by annotating learned vehicle events.
