Usually there are many symbols related to driving on the roads. In that few of them are important and few of them are negligible. By considering this factor we are going to propose a novel approach to detect traffic signs or signal in real-time basis. Generally to recognize a symbol beside road using a digital process we have to consider two major things which are vehicle speed and sign distance. The proposed novel approach is going to use the PIR sensor to detect the traffic signs which are present at long distance. The output is going to generate an intelligent voice command to enlarge or to give an alert to the person who is driving the vehicle. This novel approach focuses on gathering and analyzing the traffic signs to generate an appropriate alert message to the driver by processing the directions of the symbols and indications. To do this the image processing techniques like Canny edge detection and Gaussian filter will help with analysis of the signs which are gathered by photographic cameras.
