With the maturity and popularity of UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) technology, UAV video is becoming an effective supplement to the fixed monitoring video. In the aspect of traffic information acquisition, the advantages of UAV are obvious. UAV can fly not only between the buildings, but also on the freeway, and even into the tunnel, showing the unique flexibility and maneuverability. UAV can control its hovering position artificially and has a high angle shot to get more comprehensive and clearer video data. In some emergent situation, such as evacuation caused by typhoons and earthquakes, there are lots of countryside areas without fixed road monitoring cameras. UAV is undoubtedly the best choice to fast deploy and get traffic information at the front.
