Abstract: Traffic Sign Detection and Recognition (TSDR) has many features help the driver in improving the safety and comfort, today it is widely used in the automotive manufacturing sector, a robust detection and recognition system a good solution for driver assistance systems, it can warn the driver and control or prohibit certain actions which significantly increase driving safety and comfort. This paper presents a study to design, implement and test a method of detection and recognition of road signs based on computer vision. The approach adopted in this work consists of two main modules: a detection module which is based on color segmentation and edge detection to identify areas of the scene may contain road signs and a recognition module based on the multilayer perceptrons whose role is to match the patterns detected with road signs corresponding visual information. The development of these two modules is performed using the C/C++ language and the OpenCV library. The tests are performed on a set of real images of traffic to show the performance of the system being developed.
