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.
