Pavement marking occupies an important position in the road traffic safety operation. A large number of domestic and foreign research and practice has proved that the effective use and maintenance of road signs and markings reduce traffic accidents and improve the capacity of great significance. The main content of this paper is the design of mobile video image acquisition device to road damage to the road traffic marking defect detection, video image to carry out research on road marking based on wear and breakage from video images. The process is random image acquisition of pavement markings, respectively the image pre-processing, image binarization, marking angle correction, marking extraction and detection. Finally, developing software on marking the wear and damage degree detection based on Matlab software then have an image processing experiments. The results show that the software can accurately detect the road wear and damage situation.
