Traffic Signals and Autonomous Vehicles: Vision-based or a V2I Approach?
June 13, 2016 — Autonomous vehicles operating in urban settings will need to know both the current and – ideally – the predicted states of the traffic signals they will encounter. This paper describes the various approaches that can be taken to address this problem: two vision-based approaches and two V2I-based approaches. We discuss the likely strengths and weaknesses of each, and suggest that a hybrid approach will likely be necessary in any relatively near-term deployment of autonomous technology.
