Towards a consistent threat assessment at traffic junctions using road information and naturalistic data: A test example
Paper in proceedings, 2015

This paper presents enhanced versions of two metrics: the Time-to-Brake (TTB) and the Brake-Treat-Number (BTN), which are used as measures to describe the degree of being critical of traffic situations. The main idea is to include road information as input to obtain a more advanced prediction of the leading vehicle. The results, illustrated by an example using real data, show a better assessment of the collision potential hazard and no false alarms.
