Traffic sign recognition (TSR) is considered as one of the most important modules of driver assistance sys- tem (DAS). It can be used as a decision supporting tool for driver and autonomous vehicles. Eventually, TSR is a large-scale feature learning problem and hence attracted the attention of researchers recently. The essential parameters such as huge training dataset size, recognition accuracy and computational com- plexity need to be considered while designing a practical TSR system. In this paper, we have used higher order spectra (HOS) coupled with texture based features to develop an efficient TSR model. These features represent the shape and content of the traffic signs clearly. Then a subspace learning method with graph embedding under linear discriminant analysis framework is used to increase the discrimination power between various traffic symbols. As a result the proposed method attained a maximum recognition accu- racy of 98.89%. The proposed method is evaluated using two publicly available datasets such as, Belgium traffic sign classification (BTSC) and German traffic sign recognition benchmark (GTSRB). Our experimen- tal results demonstrate that the proposed approach is computationally efficient and shows promising recognition accuracy.
