The integrated project PReVENT takes a first comprehensive step towards realising the vision of a safety zone around vehicles by means of complementary safety functions. 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, the most critical accident scenarios are covered by the applications developed. Furthermore, a requirements database is created and requirements are classified into six main categories. A 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.
