Analysis of Collision Incident using Drive Recorder 2007-01-3679
The content of this paper is related to the analysis on driver characteristics in vehicle following situation using drive recorder. The characteristics are extracted from captured data related to rear-end collision incident which are collected on public road experiment using taxi. Main topic of this paper is concerning how drivers change their rear-end distance and cruising velocity according to snowy or icy road surface conditions. The characteristics are compared with public road experiment and experiment on proving ground. From the experimental results, the error of road surface estimation of driver could be one of reasons for the trigger of rear-end collision incident in snowfall season.
