Assisting the Drivers by Means of the Constant Time to Collision Criterion

Valentina E. Balas, Marius M. Balas.

The paper is proposing an Intelligent Speed Advice and Collision Warning interface, based on the Constant Time to Collision Criterion. This criterion is addressing the car fallowing issue and it offers a speed adapted planner for the distance gap between cars. The planner is designed using a computer model of two following cars. This method is able also to support a highway traffic flow management. The interface’s decision block is implemented by a fuzzy interpolative controller that is estimating the collision risk, taking into account the traffic intensity.
