As a multi-classification problem, classification of moving vehicles has been studied by different statistical methods. These practical applications have various requirements, efficiencies, and performance, such as the size of training sample sets, convergence rate, and inseparable or ambiguous classification issues. With a reduction in its training time,the one-to-many support vector machine (SVM) method has an advantage over the standard SVM method by directly converting the binary classification problem into two multi-classification problems with short time and fast speed. When the number of training samples of a certain type is far less than the total number of samples, the accuracy of training, however, will be significantlydecreased,leading to theproblem of inseparable area. In this paper, the proposed nested one-to-one symmetric classification method on a fuzzy SVM symmetrically transforms the C multi-classification problems into the C(C-1)/2 binary classification problems with C(C-1)/2 classifiers, and solves the problem of inseparable area. According to the best combination factor of kernel function (γ, C) for the radial basis function (RBF) in the comparative experiments of training sample sets among the different algorithms, and the experimental results of many different training sample sets and test samples, the nested one-to-one symmetric classification algorithm on a fuzzy SVM for moving vehicle is able to obtain the best accuracy of recognition.
