ConnectedDrive: Advanced Assistance Systems for Intersection Safety

In order to solve the problem of high number of accidents in intersections, a top-down approach to develop advanced safety systems for such scenarios is selected. The relevant scenarios of turning, crossing and ignoring stop signs or traffic lights were identified by the analysis of intersection accidents. Based on this, a stop sign violation warning was realized in the INVENT project, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. This system gives first useful results regarding driver intention detection. The next step in the development is the traffic light assistance system using the advantages of vehicle to infrastructure communication. The controller of the more complex assistance systems for turning and crossing will be developed within the realistically felt environment of a dynamic driving simulator. This allows determining the requirements for the surveillance systems in parallel to the development of the other components such as the Human-Machine-Interface and the controller algorithm. Furthermore, the virtual environment allows the evaluation process to occur with real test drivers in critical situations without endangering them. Part of this work will be done in the InterSafe project, which is funded by the European Commission.
