Volume 8 No.1 Special Issue:February 2019 pp 21-24
Traffic Sign Detection and Recognition (TSDR) technique is a critical step for ensuring vehicle safety. This paper provides a comprehensive survey on traffic sign detection and recognition system based on image and video data. The main focus is to present the current trends and challenges in the field of developing an efficient TSDR system. The ultimate aim of this survey is to analyze the various techniques for detecting traffic signs in real time applications. Image processing is a prominent research area, where multiple technologies are associated to convert an image into digital form and perform some functions on it, in order to get an enhanced image or to extract some useful information from it.
