Introduction:
Autonomous Cars or the Self Driving Cars are capable to drive themselves without any human intervention. The Autonomous cars are designed such that they can drive themselves by sensing their environment and navigate without human input. Autonomous cars sense their surroundings using technologies like RADAR, LIDAR, GPS and Coy computer vision. Some autonomous vehicles update their maps based on sensory input, allowing the vehicles to keep track of their position even when conditions change or when they enter uncharted environments. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), United States has classified these self driving cars in some levels. For example, Level 0- The driver completely controls the vehicle at all times. Level 1-Automated braking and electronic stability control of the vehicle are automated. Level2- Two controls can be automated in combination like cruise control along with lane keeping. Similarly the other levels have advanced controls, like car senses conditions when it requires the driver to take control, in another level the car performs all the safety critical functions for the entire trip.
A very common question arises that why do we need Self-Autonomous cars?
Consider a scenario: After a long day at work, you are heading to a trip early morning next day and you have errands to complete before you leave for a weeklong vacation to Caribbean and attend a call while driving. With rush hour traffic in Los Angeles, 20 minutes commute is looking like 90 minutes commute.

...ror criterion for training.
The system were trained with training data set, and validated with validating data set to find the best network architecture. The cross-validation technique was implemented with training data set, validating data set, and test set. The experiments show consistency results with accurate classifications of traffic sign patterns with complex background images. The processing time in each frame of image is provided which is satisfied to apply in the real application
