We propose a visible light road-to-vehicle communication system at intersection for ITS. In this system, the communication between vehicle and a LED traffic light is approached using LED traffic light as the transmitter, and on-vehicle high-speed camera as the receiver. The LEDs in the transmitter are emitted with 500 Hz and the images of those emitting LEDs are captured by a high-speed camera for conducting communication. In this communication, it is extremely necessary to find the transmitter and detect it for consecutive frames while vehicle is moving. In this paper, we introduce proposals for finding and detecting it for consecutive frames by image processing. Experimental results using appropriate images showed the effectiveness of the proposal.
