Abstract: Traffic light detection is an important matter in urban environments during the transition to fully autonomous driving. Many literature has been generated in the recent years approaching different pattern recognition strategies. In this paper we present a survey summarizing relevant works in the field of detection of both suspended and supported traffic light. This survey organizes different methods highlighting main reasearch areas in the computer vision field.
