5th European Congress on ITS, Hannover, Germany - Technical Session 44 "Preventive Safety and Accident Avoidance"
3 June 2005
LATERAL SAFE introduces a cluster of safety applications of the future vehicles in order to prevent lateral/rear related accidents and assist the driver in adverse or low visibility conditions and blind spot areas. LATERAL SAFE applications will be built in a common multi-sensor platform and include a lateral and rear monitoring system, a lane change assistant and a lateral collision warning, extending the operative scenarios of existing systems to all weather conditions and congested urban areas. Moreover, LATERAL SAFE offers also a common multi-sensor platform suitable for integrating the results of other functions in a later stage. Its results will be evaluated and demonstrated in a city car equipped with all LATERAL SAFE applications, a luxury car equipped with a lane change assistant and a truck tested in a driving simulator.
