Using cooperative vehicle systems to collect near collision incidents events : a simulation study
Demmel, Sebastien, Larue, Gregoire S., Rakotonirainy, Andry, & Gruyer, Dominique (2011) Using cooperative vehicle systems to collect near collision incidents events : a simulation study. In 2nd International Workshop on Traffic Data Collection & its Standardisation, September 22-23, 2011, Brisbane, Australia.
On the road, near collision events (also close calls or near-miss incidents) largely outnumber actual crashes, yet most of them can never be recorded by current traffic data collection technologies or crashes analysis tools. The analysis of near collisions data is an important step in the process of reducing the crash rate. There have been several studies that have investigated near collisions; to our knowledge, this is the first study that uses the functionalities provided by cooperative vehicles to collect near misses information. We use the VISSIM traffic simulator and a custom C++ engine to simulate cooperative vehicles and their ability to detect near collision events. Our results showed that, within a simple simulated environment, adequate information on near collision events can be collected using the functionalities of cooperative perception systems. The relationship between the ratio of detected events and the ratio of equipped vehicle was shown to closely follow a squared law, and the largest source of nondetection was packet loss instead of packet delays and GPS imprecision.
