Development of Road Safety Information System for Active Accelerator Pedal at Curves 2007-01-3580
The “Road Safety Information System(RSIS)” addressed in this paper differs from those active and real time systems in that it controls an artificial counter force at the active accelerator pedal before the vehicle actually enters the curve to limit the cornering speed. This study aims at detecting the dangerous section on the road and warning of entering the curve. To determine dangerous section, the quality and accuracy of Digital Road Map(DRM) is very important to calculate the curve fitting on the road. The curve detection algorithm and software, which were suggested by in this paper, with effective determination were designed and developed. As a result of the research, when this method were used to find curve section it showed similar results and performances between a highway and national road.
