A new approach to designing lateral collision warning systems

Jenkins, Danielle P., Stanton, Neville A., Walker, Guy H. and Young, Mark S. (2007) A new approach to designing lateral collision warning systems International Journal of Vehicle Design, 45, (3), pp. 379-396. (doi:10.1504/IJVD.2007.014911).

Record type: Article


According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 43% of all fatal accidents reported in 2001 involved a lane or road departure. The majority of current systems and available research focuses on the prevention of longitudinal collision or lane departures. In this paper we will discuss a system that reduces the likelihood of a lateral collision. The paper proposes an interface design that provides the driver with information on the position of other road users; and delivers a time critical warning when the driver is in a position of impending collision.
