New Prediction Method of Running Out by Pressure Sensor for Pedestrian-Vehicular Collision Avoidance Support System

The authors have developed a Pedestrian-Vehicular Collision Avoidance Support System (P-VCASS) in order to protect pedestrians from traffic accidents and its effectiveness has been verified. P-VCASS is a system that takes into account a pedestrian's moving situations. It gives warning to drivers of neighboring vehicles in advance if there is a possibility of collision between vehicles and pedestrians. There are pedestrians moving around. They are dangerous for vehicle drivers because they have a high probability of running out into the road suddenly. Hence, the authors need to take into account their presence. In this paper, the authors propose a new prediction method to adapt to running out into the road by using a pressure sensor attached to the sole of a pedestrian. The authors show the validity of the proposed system by experiments using a vehicle and a pedestrian terminal in the intersection. As a result, the authors show that a driver of a vehicle is able to detect dangerous pedestrians quickly and accurately.
