Abstract: Saliency Map is the process of distinguishing the pixels from its neighboring pixels. Saliency Map plays a vital role in many computer vision and image processing applications. This paper briefs the effective use of Saliency Map in Automobile applications. There are many individual algorithm like pedestrian detection, sign board detection, lane detection, traffic board detection algorithm and so on, but the computational time will be more. Saliency Map acts as an intermediate stage and reduce the computational time. Bottom-up approach is used to extract the saliency of an image. Graph based SLIC segmentation is used to segment the foreground object from the background.

Keywords: Saliency Map, Graph based SLIC segmentation, foreground, background.
