Moving vehicles detection is an important part of Intelligence Transport System (ITS). Traditional method of moving vehicles detection from video is image subtraction which is apt to be affected by brightness changing, in this paper a kind of moving vehicles detection algorithm based on optical flow is purposed: estimate optical flow through two consecutive frames' image pyramids and compute every optical flow image's threshold with which images are be segment into binaryzation images, after
