    Abstract

    According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 43% of all fatal accidents reported in 2001 involved a lane or road departure. The majority of current systems and available research focuses on the prevention of longitudinal collision or lane departures. In this paper we will discuss a system that reduces the likelihood of a lateral collision. The paper proposes an interface design that provides the driver with information on the position of other road users; and delivers a time critical warning when the driver is in a position of impending collision.
