Abstract Road sign identification in images is an important issue, in particular for vehicle safety applications. It is usually tackled in three stages: detection, recognition and tracking, and evaluated as a whole. To progress towards better algorithms, we focus in this paper on the first stage of the process, namely road sign detection. More specifically, we compare, on the same ground-truth image database, results obtained by three algorithms that sample different state-of-the-art approaches. The three tested algorithms: Contour Fitting, Radial Symmetry Transform, and pair-wise voting scheme, all use color and edge information and are based on geometrical models of road signs. The test dataset is made of 847 images 960 × 1080 of complex urban scenes (available at They feature 251 road signs of different shapes (circular, rectangular, triangular), sizes and types. The pros and cons of the three algorithms are discussed, allowing to draw new research perspectives. 1.
