The INTERSAFE-2 project aims to develop and demonstrate a Cooperative Intersection Safety System (CISS) that is able to significantly reduce injury and fatal accidents at intersections.
The novel CISS combines warning and intervention functions demonstrated on three vehicles: two passenger cars and one heavy goods vehicle. Furthermore, a simulator is used for additional R&D. These functions are based on novel cooperative scenario interpretation and risk assessment algorithms.
The cooperative sensor data fusion is based on:
- state-of-the-art and advanced on-board sensors for object recognition and relative localisation,
- a standard navigation map
and information supplied over a communication link from
- other road users via V2V if the other vehicle is so equipped
- infrastructure sensors and traffic lights via V2I if the infrastructure is so equipped
to observe the complex intersection environment.
As a result, the deployment of the INTERSAFE-2 system could provide a positive safety impact of 80% with respect to injuries and fatal accidents at intersections. Thus a total safety benefit of up to 40% of all injury accidents and up to 20% of all fatalities in Europe is possible.
The utilization of V2X communication for CISS at a small number of equipped intersections would boost the overall market penetration of communication in vehicles, since the benefit for those who buy first could be experienced at every equipped intersection.
