The system described in this chapter is a traffic sign recognition based on a color camera. Each algorithm step will be detailed: a color segmentation to identify the possible regions of interest, a shape detection, and the final sign classification and tracking. A description of the encountered problems and their solutions is given as well. The last section presents the algorithm results.
