Abstract

See full text

Vehicle recognition may be achieved by receiving multiple metrics from one or more vehicle sensors, analyzing the metrics to create a multi-metric vehicle identification profile comprising at least two of the multiple metrics, at least one result of the analyzing, or both, and matching the multi-metric vehicle identification profile against multiple stored vehicle sensor recordings.
