Route Segmentation into Speed Limit Categories by using Image Analysis

Philippe Foucher, Emmanuel Moebel, Pierre Charbonnier

Abstract

In this contribution, we address the problem of road sequence segmentation into speed limit categories, as perceived by the user. We propose an algorithm that is based on two processing steps. First, the images are classified independently using a standard random forest algorithm. Low-level and high-level approaches are proposed and compared. In the second phase, a sequential smoothing of the results using different filters is applied. An evaluation based on two databases of images with ground truth shows the pros and cons of the methods.
