Occlusion-robust Traffic Sign Detection via Cascaded Colour Cubic Feature

The high variability of sign appearance with partial occlusions in uncontrolled environments has made the detection of traffic signs a challenging problem in computer vision. In this study, an occlusion-robust traffic sign detection framework is proposed. To achieve occlusion-robust detection, a colour cubic feature called colour cubic local binary pattern (CC-LBP) is proposed to construct a coarse-to-fine cascaded detector. The CC-LBP utilises colour information and a self-adaptive threshold to express multiclass traffic signs, which can effectively remove non-object subwindows in the cascade-based detection. The verification experiments show that the proposed CC-LBP feature performs better than the previous rectangular features in representing multiclass traffic signs, and that the proposed occlusion-robust detection method can detect multiclass partial occluded traffic signs with high accuracy in real time.
