Map Based Applications the Reference Track Approach

Cooperative applications act on the basis of a detailed representation of their nearby surroundings. Such a representation is built from highly accurate digital maps, supported by a dynamic database capturing all additional relevant information, both static map data and dynamic objects, with their geographic context. The reference track approach discussed in this paper uses map data concerning reference courses across or near intersections for describing the near-future paths of vehicles and other moving objects at such locations in terms of a moving horizon. This paper concludes with an example of how applications developed within the European research projects SAFESPOT and Cooperativel Vehicle Information Systems (CVIS) use the horizon to determine the events a vehicle will encounter.
