This paper presents a new method for road anomaly detection. The existence of road anomalies is determined by the behaviors of vehicles. A special polynomial named Sum-of-Squares (SOS) polynomial is used as a metric to evaluate the normality of vehicle behaviors. The method can process multiple types of sensor measurements. A feature extraction method is used to obtain concise representations of the sensor measurements. These representations, called feature points, are used to calculate the value of the SOS polynomial. Simulation results have been shown to demonstrate that the proposed method can effectively detect different types of road anomalies.
