5th European Congress on ITS, Hannover, Germany - Technical Session 37 “Map Enabled ADAS”
3 June 2005

 

The MAPS&ADAS subproject of the integrated project PReVENT develops and validates a standard map in-terface for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). The accident hot spot warning application is a pilot to prove the concept and illustrate the potential of enhancing ADAS applications with map and location based information. It requires the development of a safety map containing information on ac-cident hot spots and risk exposure related to network links. While driving, a warning algorithm will con-tinually compare the current environmental and vehicle conditions with the map information and warn the driver when surpassing an unacceptable risk threshold. Several methodological challenges will be tackled like the identification of true accident hot spots, actuality of the electronic map database, vehicle path prediction, the warning algorithm and the design of the human machine interface.
