Traffic Light Detection is a problem differently approached by many research groups around the world. Here we present a novel technique to detect suspended traffic lights, based on colors and features such as black area of traffic lights or area of lighting lamps. Additionally, the traffic light distance is estimated aiming at slowing down and stopping in the correct position, in case of red light. Some preliminary test results are presented to assess both the detection rate and the distance estimation.
