A vision based vehicle guidance system must be able to detect and recognize traffic signs. Traffic sign recognition systems collect information about road signs and helps the driver to make timely decisions, making driving safer and easier. This paper deals with the detection and recognition of traffic signs from image sequences using the colour information. Colour based segmentation techniques are employed for traffic sign detection. In order to improve the performance of segmentation, we used the product of enhanced hue and saturation components. To obtain better shape classification performance, we used linear support vector machine with the distance to border features of the segmented blobs. Recognition of traffic signs are implemented using multi-classifier non-linear support vector machine with edge related pixels of interest as the feature.
