PReVENT takes a first comprehensive step towards realising the vision of a safety zone around vehicles by means of complementary safety functions. The most critical accident scenarios are covered by the applications developed. The foundation for requirements are laid in the analysis of driver behaviour and accidents, followed by a definition of functions needed from a vehicle to prevent the accident from happening or mitigating its consequences. As a result a requirements database is created and requirements is classified into six main categories. A resulting common PReVENT architecture is presented and highlighted by a sub-project focusing on lateral safety applications. Finally, the approach to further integrate individual preventive safety functions on a common platform is outlined.
