|One interesting publicity application for Smart City environments is recognizing brand information contained in urban advertising
panels. For such a purpose, a previous stage is to accurately detect and
locate the position of these panels in images. This work presents an effective solution to this problem using a Single Shot Detector (SSD) based
on a deep neural network architecture that minimizes the number of
false detections under multiple variable conditions regarding the panels and the scene. Achieved experimental results using the Intersection
over Union (IoU) accuracy metric make this proposal applicable in real
complex urban images.
