Detailed accident analysis shows that intersection scenarios are a serious focal point for accidents in urban areas. Such an analysis was done in the INTERSAFE subproject to emphasise the need of intersection safety driver assistance systems. There exist a lot of different intersection types with different levels of
complexity. Therefore, the relevant scenarios were chosen out of the accident analysis to focus only on the most dangerous scenarios.
INTERSAFE focuses on 2 approaches. The first one is a bottom-up approach, using state of the art sensors and infrastructure to vehicle communication. The second one is a top-down approach based on a driving simulator. Thus different sensor configurations and communication methods will be evaluated. In addition the investigation of dangerous scenarios can be realised as well.
