We demonstrate a single-shot and image-based polarization detection system for material recognition. The Stokes parameters are measured under a single-shot measurement using 4 electrically tunable liquid crystal wave plates, 4 polarizers, and 4 camera modules. The optical principle is introduced and the experiments are performed. We also use a metallic plate and a glass substrate to demonstrate the material recognition. The impact of this study is to provide a practical way in image-based polarization detection in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems for material recognition which could help in driving safety.
