The idea of detection of moving objects and the concept of classification of moving objects is considered to be the important part of research in video processing and in real-time applications for surveillance and tracking of vehicles. In scientific terms, image processing is said to be any form of signal processing, where the input is an image and the output of image processing may taken be either an image or a set of characteristics or parameters related to the image. The proposed work of the paper is to detect and classify vehicles in a given video. It consists of two modules, first one uses GLOH algorithm for feature extraction and feature reduction. The second module classifies the vehicle from an input video frame using PCA. The final result is obtained by integrating the above-said modules.
