Technical Session TS69 : Intelligent vehicle - intersections II

Accidents at intersections happen when drivers perform inappropriate manoeuvres. Advanced sensor systems will enable the development of Advanced Driver
Assistance Systems (ADAS) which can estimate the potential for a collision at a junction. Based on this the driver can be assisted to avoid the accident.
This objective can be achieved by sensors for detection of vehicles and all other objects present at the intersection as well as sensors for localisation of the host
vehicle when approaching the intersection and being on the intersection. Within INTERSAFE the accurate localisation of the host vehicle is achieved by
Laserscanners and video using individual feature-level maps of the intersection. Furthermore the Laserscanner system will be used to track and classify other road
users and obstacles, providing additional data for the path prediction and risk assessment part of the application.
