Detection of traffic light state is essential for autonomous driving in cities. Currently, the only reliable systems for determining traffic light state information are non-passive proofs of concept, requiring explicit communication between a traffic signal and vehicle. Here, we present a passive camera-based pipeline for traffic light state detection,(More)
In order to achieve autonomous operation of a vehicle in urban situations with unpredictable traffic, several realtime systems must interoperate, including environment perception, localization, planning, and control. In addition, a robust vehicle platform with appropriate sensors, computational hardware, networking, and software infrastructure is essential.
This is a report based on a student research project conducted at San José State University in the Spring of 2009, which was a continuation of a similar project conducted in the Spring 2008. The goal of both projects was to investigate the possibility that the speed of a photon depends on its energy and thus that the speed of light is not an absolute(More)
