Title (EN) MOVING TRAFFIC-LIGHT DETECTION SYSTEM FOR AN AUTOMATED VEHICLE
(FR) SYSTÈME DE DÉTECTION DE FEU DE CIRCULATION POUR UN VÉHICULE AUTOMATISÉ
Abstract:
(EN) A traffic-light-detection system (10) that visually determines a light-state (18) of a traffic-light (20) proximate to an automated vehicle includes a camera (24), a controller (32), and optionally a radar (28). The camera (24) and the radar (28) are on a host- vehicle (12). The camera (24) renders a series-of-images (26) of a traffic-light (20) proximate to a host-vehicle (12). The radar (28) detects radar-returns (30) from the traffic-light (20). The controller (32) is configured to determine a motion-pattern (34) of the traffic-light (20) based on the series-of-images (26) and/or the radar-returns (30), and select a preferred-image (36) from the series-of-images (26) based on the motion-pattern (34). The preferred-image (36) shows a light-source (38) of the traffic-light (20) characterized as being most directed at the camera (24) when the motion-pattern (34) indicates that the traffic-light (20) is moving. The controller (32) is further configured to determine a light-state (18) of the traffic-light (20) based on the preferred-image (36).
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de détection de feu de circulation (10) qui détermine visuellement un état d'éclairage (18) d'un feu de circulation (20) à proximité d'un véhicule automatisé comprenant une caméra (24), un dispositif de commande (32) et éventuellement un radar (28). La caméra (24) et le radar (28) sont sur un véhicule hôte (12). La caméra (24) fournit une série d'images (26) d'un feu de circulation (20) à proximité d'un véhicule hôte (12). Le radar (28) détecte des échos radar (30) du feu de circulation (20). Le dispositif de commande (32) est configuré pour déterminer un profil de mouvement (34) du feu de circulation (20) sur la base de la séries d'images (26) et des échos radar (30) et sélectionner une image préférée (36) à partir de la série d'images (26) sur la base du profil de mouvement (34). L'image préférée (36) montre une source de lumière (38) du feu de circulation (20) caractérisée comme étant la plus dirigée vers la caméra (24) lorsque le profil de mouvement (34) indique que le feu de circulation (20) se déplace. Le dispositif de commande (32) est en outre configuré pour déterminer un état d'éclairage (18) du feu de circulation (20) sur la base de l'image préférée (36).
