To provide an effective notification service for the blinds awaiting the bus, it is crucial to have a viewpoint classification technique in which a viewpoint is defined with tilt and panning of camera. This paper proposes a viewpoint classification method using the car distribution information in the congested traffic environment. The proposed method takes four steps for classification. First, the YOLO algorithm is used to detect the car positions in the images. Second, the car positions are

The proposed method uses the information gain measure to select relevant ones from the extracted features, and uses the Random Forest algorithm as a classifier. In the experiments, the proposed method has been tested for various roadside scenarios of congested traffic in day and night. The accuracies for car detection and viewpoint classification were 79.90% and 86.00%, respectively, which are improved compared to the prior work.
