Abstract: In this paper we have designed and constructed an IoT-based platform which can automatically send information about the road signs. Here, we will demonstrate the basic idea of how to set-up a communication between the upcoming vehicle and the sign boards. This system will play an important role for the recognition and detection of specific locations like markets, schools, speed breakers, universities, hospitals, offices etc. Detecting and recognising traffic signs is a challenging problem. Traffic sign recognition (TSR) is an issue of concern for drivers because of the speed in which they tend to travel at, especially on the highways. We present a device that will detect the road sign with the help of IoT using a very simple logic.
