The figure of road toll at intersections around the world has not decreased in spite of the innovation and improvement of road and vehicle safety technologies. One of the most advancing technologies being developed for road safety is sensor technology. The development and installment of sensors in vehicles and on the road have caused a flood of data to be understood. Extracting patterns and trends from such data is important for better situation awareness and threat detection in an intersection. Ubiquitous computing techniques, such as ubiquitous data mining and multiagent system, have the potential to improve intersection safety. We propose a framework that utilizes both mathematical model and data mining to detect dangerous behavioral patterns and potential collision between vehicles in an intersection.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
