Intersection Warning System for Occlusion Risks Using Relational Local Dynamic Maps

This work addresses the task of risk evaluation in traffic scenarios with limited observability due to restricted sensorial coverage. Here, the authors concentrate on intersection scenarios that are difficult to access visually. To identify the area of sight, they employ ray casting on a local dynamic map providing geometrical information and road infrastructure. Based on the area with reduced visibility, the authors first model scene entities that pose a potential risk without being visually perceivable yet. Then, the authors predict a worst-case trajectory in the survival analysis for collision risk estimation. Resulting risk indicators are utilized to evaluate the driver's current behavior, to warn the driver in critical situations, to give suggestions on how to act safely or to plan safe trajectories. The authors validate their approach by applying the resulting intersection warning system on real world scenarios. The proposed system's behavior reveals to mimic the general behavior of a correctly acting human driver.
