Title: METHOD FOR DETECTING FALSE POSITIVES RELATING TO A TRAFFIC LIGHT
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a method for detecting false positives relating to a traffic light from a video stream of images captured by a camera installed in a motor vehicle, the traffic light being configured to switch between a plurality of states, each state being characterised by at least one coloured area representative of a signal. The method comprises the step of filtering (E4) images, according to a predetermined list of filtering criteria relating to the states of the traffic light, based on a predetermined history of the colour of the pixels of the coloured area representing a luminous object detected in the video stream of images, in order to detect false positives.
