Abstract: The motivation behind this research work is to improve car safety and efficiency. The concept of self driving cars is heard from years, it has not come into usage in many countries because of the lack of complete intelligence in the vehicle. Some of the modern vehicles provide partially automated specifications such as keeping the car within its lane, speed controls or emergency braking. According to statistics most of the accidents occur due to lack of instant response to traffic signs and obstacles ahead. In case of self driving car this problem can be addressed by detecting the traffic signals using high end camera. Real time traffic sign detection model accomplishes its objective by identifying the traffic signals and obstacles. A high end camera is used to capture the image, raspberry pi 3 is used as hardware and open computer vision library is used to process the image and identify the patterns in the image to properly detect the signals. Ultra sonic distance sensor is used to identify the obstacles.
