Improved Traffic Signal Detection and Classification via Image Processing Algorithms

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

An image analysis technique for automatic traffic sign detection and classification is proposed. It makes it possible, afterproper training, to detect, recognize and classify vertical road signs from video frames acquired on a moving vehicle equippedwith cameras, as well as to identify anomalies with respect to road sign regulations (positioning and visibility).The experimental results show that this technique allows one to correctly detect and classify almost all vertical signs and,mainly in extra-urban environment, it can be considered as highly reliable, apart from being really versatile and user-friendlyfor road inventory and road maintenance purposes.
