City administrators need to guarantee bus priority in urban public transportation. Building large-scale dedicated bus lanes is a cost-effective solution but it suffers from illegal utilization of dedicated bus lines by other non-permitted vehicles. In general, two systems can be utilized for bus lane monitoring: road-side system and bus mounted system. Although the former one has the advantage in terms of larger surveillance coverage, the investment cost makes it less feasible because of scalability issue. In this paper, we focus on bus mounted system to improve surveillance coverage without additional infrastructure cost. We introduce DoubleChecking, a cooperative violator identification scheme that can accurately pick out those non-permitted vehicles or violators. DoubleChecking is designed to improve the surveillance coverage of bus mounted system by using communications/cooperation between mounted camera sensors and existing camera sensors around intersections. Through theoretical analysis and simulation results, we show that DoubleChecking yields good performance for violator identification.
