Abstract
We propose a method for fully automatic calibration of traffic surveillance cameras. This method allows for calibration of the camera - including scale - without any user input, only from several minutes of input surveillance video. The targeted applications include speed measurement, measurement of vehicle dimensions, vehicle classification, etc. 
The achieved mean accuracy of speed and distance measurement is below 2%. Our efficient C++ implementation runs in real time on a lowend processor (Core i3) with a safe margin even for full-HD videos.
