The present invention is a velocity detection system and method. In accordance with an embodiment of the invention, a series of still images of moving automobiles are taken at known intervals. An Image processor algorithm is used to determine local features of the moving automobile and in conjunction with known optical formulas, the velocity of the moving object can be determined. Once the velocity is determined, all of the moving automobiles are highlighted with their calculated velocity on a liquid crystal display screen. Images may be exported into flash memory for future reference.
