The reduced driving visibility at night makes it important in driver support to improve recognize obstacle recognition. We propose detecting vehicle tail lights by us bright color information issued at night and measuring the relative distance to the vehicle from its image position using stereo vision. We conducted experiments to determine the effectiveness of our proposed technique.
