The INTERSAFE project was created to generate a European Approach to increase the safety at intersections. The main objective of the INTERSAFE project is to improve safety and to reduce (in the longterm also: to avoid) fatal collisions at Intersections.
The objective will be achieved by a combination of sensors for detection of crossing traffic and all other objects on the intersection as well as sensors for localisation of the host vehicle when approaching the intersection and being on the intersection. Furthermore, there will be a communication between the host vehicle and the infra-structure, to exchange additional information about weather, traffic, road conditions, etc.
