1   Definition

The digital representation of the traffic signalisations used at a U-Location. For the sake of simplicity, it is assumed that Traffic Signal Descriptors are derived using Audio and Visual Scene Descriptors. The content of this Subsection can be easily extended to apply to Scene Descriptors of other Environment Sensing Technology Data.

2   Functional Requirements

Traffic Signal Descriptors include:

  1. Position and Orientation of the traffic audio and visual signals at the U-Location:
    • Road signs
    • Traffic signs
    • Traffic lights
    • Walkways
    • Lanes
    • Traffic sound
  2. Semantics of the traffic signals.

Traffic Signal Descriptors can be used as Attributes of the MPAI-specified Scene Descriptors.

5   Data Types and Formats

Traffic Signal Descriptors are Attributes of the Audio-Visual Scene’s Objects.

6   To Respondents

Respondents are requested to:

  1. Comment on, extend, or reformulate the Functional Requirements.
  2. Comment on the use MPAI Object and Space Descriptors for Traffic Signal Descriptors needs.
  3. Propose alternative Traffic Signal Descriptors solutions.
