► What is "Traffic Sign Camera"
"Traffic Sign Camera" app detects road signs using the camera while driving. It displays your current speed along with the last detected speed limit and color and sound indicate when you are too fast. This makes "Traffic Sign Camera Vision" a very useful driving app. Currently it recognizes over 40 road signs.
► Working principle
"Traffic Sign Camera Vision" is not considered to always display the current speed limit at any time and place, instead it is a sign recognizer for selected signs, shown in the App Store. This means that e.g. within a town the default speed limit is not displayed because there are no signs for the default speed limit. Please bear that in mind when using "Traffic Sign Camera Vision" app. Also please read the liability disclaimer below.
► System requirements
"Traffic Sign Camera Vision" requires an iPhone SE, 6 or higher running under iOS 10 that must provide the extension 'Metal Performance Shaders'. There is no support for iPhone 5 or lower and there won't be in the future due to hardware constraints.
"Traffic Sign Camera Vision" does a computational intensive job that formerly was limited to mainframes. Therefore there are some restrictions:
- At night and in adverse lighting conditions the recognition of road signs might fail due to iPhone camera limitations.
- The app is optimized for German traffic signs. However in many countries the signs are very similar and therefore the app should work there too. Unfortunately there is yet no support for US speed limits.
- There is no support for 'end of limit' signs yet and no support for place/city signs that might also decrease the speed limit according to local traffic road regulations.- Sometimes traffic signs in narrow turns are missed due to the limited view angle of the camera
- Sometimes there are missed or false road sign detections
