Automatic detection of text on road signs can help drivers keep aware of the traffic situation and surrounding environments by reminding them of the signs ahead. Current systems can only detect constrained road signs or produce unsatisfying performance when dealing with complex scenes in practical use. This paper firstly reviews the existing techniques used for text detection from natural scene. A novel system which detects text on road signs from natural scene video is then proposed. Our detailed approaches and methodology give a promising solution to this problem in order to reduce the running time and improve the recognition rate. © 2006 IEEE.
