Slide 1. Cooperative Intersection Collision Avoidance Initiative

Slide 2. The Challenge

  • Every year at intersections:
    • 9100 FATALITIES
    • 1,500,000 INJURIES
    • 3,000,000 CRASHES
  • Cost to society: $124 Billion/year

Sources: FARS and GES data, 2002

Slide 3. Opportunity

  • Substantial research has been accomplished in the area of intersection collision problems
  • Recent technology advances allow for innovative systems to be more effective in reducing the number and severity of crashes
  • Active safety systems are being more embraced by OEMs and the driving public

Slide 4. Goals

  • To substantially reduce cross-path crashes at intersections thru the application of ITS technologies
    • Addressing violations of red lights and stop signs
    • Assisting the driver in maneuvering through an intersection
  • To develop systems that provide safety benefits without shifting the crash problem elsewhere

Slide 5. Milestone/End Product

  • To develop and demonstrate cooperative intersection collision avoidance systems
  • To assess the value and acceptance of cooperative collision avoidance systems
  • To develop and provide tools to support industry deployments
