Road Sign Detection Using Deep Learning

Traffic road signs are an important part of our road infrastructure. Without road signs, the percentage of road accidents would increase; drivers wouldn't know, for example, how fast they should be going or whether there are roadworks, sharp turns, or school crossings ahead. In this chapter, we are going to solve an important problem in self-driving car (SDC) technology – traffic sign detection. We will implement a model that will achieve 95% accuracy.

We are going to use the German traffic signs dataset, which is free to use. I have taken inspiration from the following publication: J. Stallkamp, M. Schlipsing, J. Salmen, and C. Igel. The German Traffic Sign Recognition Benchmark: A multi-class classification ...
