Abstract: The vehicle detection system plays an essential role in the traffic video surveillance system. Video communication of these traffic cameras over real-world limited bandwidth networks can frequently suffer network congestion. The objective of this paper is to develop an effective method for moving vehicle detection problems that can find high quality solutions (with respect to detection accuracy) at a high convergence speed. To achieve this objective, we propose a method that hybridises the cuckoo search (CS) with Opposition-based learning (OBL), where OBL is improve the performance of the CS algorithm while optimising the weights of the standard PNN model. The proposed system mainly consists of two modules such as: 1) design novel OCS-PNN model; 2) moving vehicle detection using OCS-PNN model. The algorithm is tested on three standard video dataset. For instance, the proposed method achieved the maximum precision of 94%, F-measure of 94% and similarity of 94%.
