Cooperative Collision Warning: Enabling Crash Avoidance with Wireless Technology

In this paper we present an overview of the Cooperative Collision Warning (CCW) project conducted by the University of California Partners for Advanced Transit and Highways (PATH) program and General Motors Research and Development which examined and demonstrated wireless-enabled vehicle-to-vehicle cooperative safety systems for collision warning. We developed and demonstrated three Cooperative Collision Warning safety applications: a forward collision warning assistant, an intersection assistant, along with a blind-spot and lane change “situational awareness” assistant. The combination the three provides the concept for always-on system for 360-deg of driver situational awareness. The performance of the system was demonstrated at two sites: the PATH Richmond Field Station (RFS) facility and Crows Landing, approximately 90 miles from the RFS. These demonstrations established the advantages and needs for further research of CCW.
