An In-Vehicle Approach for Improving Traffic Safety through GIS Utilization
2002 (English)In: Proceedings of the IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man and Cybernetics. 2002, 2002Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper focuses on the utilization and integration of geographic information systems (GIS) oriented to tragic safety in vehicles. We have primarily analyzed the benefits of introducing GIS systems that support the driver and provide processed data to collision warning and collision avoidance systems located in vehicles. Further on, we have defined a set of information that is relevant for traffic safety and appropriate to be used within an in-vehicle GIS system. Based on these data, we propose in this paper a specific design for the GIS system. This system integrates the relevant data for traffic safety and takes into consideration the specific requirements of the vehicular domain. The integration of the GIS system within vehicles introduces a series of problems that are discussed in the paper.
