In this invention, in-car object change alert system is used to help driver to know when he should drive the car. In this way, when he is waiting for traffic light or traffic jam, he can to do other personal things and don

' t need to focus on traffic light or other cars.

The flowchart of this approach is shown in Figure 1. It contains two phrases:

1) Object changes action training: We should define items which are suitable for using as detecting object, for example, traffic lights, car plates. At the same time, we should define the change action for these items, for example, traffic light color changes, car plates becomes smaller. Then we can get a model.

2) Online detection: When the car is stopping, Driving Recorder takes a photo and uses the model to detect items in this picture, then use square frame to tell drivers these items can be selected. Drivers use finger to select one or more items. System now is working on monitoring these items based on the model. When the action is performed, system play a sound to alert drivers.
