TRAFFIC SIGN RECOGNITION

PRELIMINARY PROJECT REPORT Submitted by


Kishan Ganapathi Phalguni 08EC28

08EC46
Under the Guidance of Dr. Sumam David Mr Venugopal Madumbu Mrs Resmi Rajendran (TI)

(TI)

Objective
To identify and classify the traffic signals from a real

time video input. Driver assistance by warning the person about the traffic signs ahead

Motivation
Increase safety and prevent accidents. Significant step in introduction of automated driving

systems.

Background
Different methods neural networks, genetic

algorithms, simulated annealing, histographs, etc. Many simulations, few implementations. Research at Diamler Benz (Germany). Implementation using FPGA, multi-core SoC, etc. Accuracy = 65 to 96% Time for computation = 0.3s to 28s

Choice of Approach
Criteria: Simple, Fast, Accurate

Avoid neural networks as they require training.


Colour of signs - Distinguishing feature. Regular Shape of Signs - Circle, triangle and

rectangle. Euclidean distance measurements for template matching. Tracking (using Kalman filters) if necessary.

Targets
Detect and identify Indian traffic signs in real time.

Attempt to detect multiple signs.


Information boards with text are not considered. Identify the speed limits Implement the Algorithm in OpenCV. On Board Implementation, i.e. on TI processor

C64XX Real time demo.

Overall Functional Diagram

Targets
OpenCV code implementation - 2nd week of

October 2011 Implementation on C64X board - 2nd week of February 2012 Final Demo - 2nd week of April 2012
