Abstract: This paper presents an efficient method for road signs segmentation in color images. Color segmentation of road signs is a difficult task due to variations in the image acquisition conditions. Therefore, a color constancy algorithm is usually applied prior to segmentation, which increases the computation time. The proposed method is based on a log-chromaticity color space which shows good invariance properties to changing illumination. Thus, the method is simple and fast since it does not require color constancy algorithms. Experiments with a large dataset and comparison with other approaches, show the robustness and accuracy of the method in detecting road signs in various conditions.
