Due to the traffic accidents over the last few years; the development of surveillance systems with multifunctional techniques has received increasing attention. The use of the smart camera is one solution to solve the traffic problems, Smart cameras are cameras that can perform tasks far beyond simply taking photos and recording videos. Highways Traffic Surveillance System (HTSS) is used to monitor the roads in preventing accidents at the same time finding what causes the accidents. This is done by implementing some image vision protocols as that of Gaussian and Canny. This paper will discuss about the camera-video-surveillance capabilities of tracking across different and varied road environments including detection of moving vehicles. The programming method used will be the functional programming of OpenCV which could be operated under both, Windows and Linux OS. This paper will also examine the result of the combination of computer vision programming and the network socket programming under GNU Linux. At the end, this paper will attempt to discuss the design issues and challenges.
