Cooperative vulnerable road users
WATCH-OVER started in January 2006. It is a specific targeted project co-funded by the European Commission Information Society Technologies in the strategic objective "eSafety Co-operative Systems for Road Transport".
The goal is the design and development of a cooperative system for the prevention of accidents involving vulnerable road users in urban and extra-urban areas. The innovative concept is represented by an on board platform and by a vulnerable user module. The system is based on short range communication and vision sensors.
WATCH-OVER intends to examine the detection of vulnerable road users in the complexity of traffic scenarios in which pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists are walking or moving together with cars and other vehicles.
