Surrounding Environment Recognition Device

Abstract: 

A surrounding environment recognition device includes an image capturing unit that captures a peripheral image, and a traffic signal detecting unit, which sets a search region with respect to the peripheral image, and detects a traffic signal inside of the search region. The search region becomes smaller as the distance from the image capturing unit is farther away.
