In order to analyze the performance of vehicle positioning using LED traffic lights in foggy environment, the influences of receiving angle, road width, and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) at the receiver in foggy environment on vehicle positioning range are discussed. The simulation results show that the optimal signal reception angle is 25°; when the vehicle is within 20 m of the LED traffic light, the road width has a greater impact on the received power of the signal; near the traffic light, the positioning distance of the vehicle on the second lane is 2.2 m shorter than that of the vehicle in the first lane; the SNR of the receiver at night is better than during the day, and the positioning range at night is greater than during the day; compared with sunny weather, the SNR in the fog days decrease significantly, which will greatly affect the positioning range of the vehicle, so to ensure safe driving, vehicles need more braking time when driving in foggy days.
