Supplementary traffic signs are used to alter the meaning of other traffic signs. Assistance systems that recognize traffic signs therefore must also recognize supplementary signs to evaluate their influence on the meaning of detected traffic signs. We propose an algorithm which is able to detect supplementary signs in the vicinity of other signs using a novel rectangle segmentation algorithm. Support vector machines are used for the classification and rejection of other objects. The… CONTINUE READING
