Multi-Level Sensing and Situation Awareness Evaluation for Adaptive Collision Countermeasure Activation 2002-01-1883

Integrated, microprocessor-based, predictive crash systems provide opportunities for significant improvements in automobile safety. Consequently, next generation safety systems will incorporate various kinds of engineering concepts such as radar and laser-based sensors as well as vision-based electronic imaging systems that track the distance and closing velocity of objects detected to be on a potential collision path with a vehicle. A discussion on the synergies obtained from the integration of sensor systems for enhanced performance of safety products is presented. A multi-level situation awareness approach to assess the potential for imminent collision, and activate safety actuator systems to meet the challenges of improved safety, is presented.
