Driver support systems using images are paid attention and various researches on recognizing and understanding the road environment have been done. If it is possible to detect and recognize traffic lights, it will give useful information to a driver to understand the road environment. In this paper, a method of detecting a traffic light in a scene image is proposed. Considering the structure of a traffic light, we propose a method for detecting a traffic light based on the Hough transform. Experimental results using images including a traffic light taken by a digital camera through a windshield verifies the effectiveness of the proposed method.
