D22.32/II Hazard detection algorithms
Wireless Local Danger Warning investigates a full system approach from Hazard Detection in the car over Message Distribution by Communication to Driver Warning in the receiving car. Using inter-vehicle communication, drivers are warned early, before the approach to a dangerous spot. WILLWARN serves in PReVENT as a function for foresighted and safe driving. WILLWARN vehicles detect hazards using in-vehicle sensors. Requirements for sensor equipment and algorithms have been
described in an earlier deliverable. Starting from this information, algorithms are described, which are applied and evaluated in the fleet of demonstrator cars.
Algorithms for obstacle detection, reduced visibility and reduced friction are described in detail. These algorithms cover the field of simple logics, having as inputs CAN data from light and wiper status over Bayesian Networks to complex observers, based on vehicle dynamics detecting friction and vehicle’s avoidance manoeuvres.
In this deliverable all the algorithms, which will be tested and used for the demonstrator cars are described.
