TOWARDS THE ESTIMATION OF CONSPICUITY WITH VISUAL PRIORS

2008 Proceedings of the Third International Conference on Computer Vision Theory and Applications   unpublished
Traffic signs are designed to be clearly seen by drivers. However a little is known about the visual influence of the traffic sign environment on how it will be perceived. Computer estimation of the conspicuity from images using a camera mounted on a vehicle is thus of importance in order to be able to quickly make a diagnosis regarding conspicuity of traffic signs. Unfortunately, our knowledge about the human visual processing system is rather incomplete and thus conspicuity visual mechanisms

It makes sense to assume that an important task for drivers is to search for traffic signs. We therefore propose a new paradigm for conspicuity estimation in search tasks based on statistical learning of the visual features of the object of interest.
