City Safety

Novel panoramic sensor technologies now allow comprehensive observation and evaluation of the complex city traffic environment. To improve protection of vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists, a particular objective of UR:BAN is to evaluate and predict their behavior and movements. In complex urban traffic, the driver is supported in maneuvers such as driving in narrow or obstructed streets, resolving conflicts with opposing traffic, and performing lane changes; using novel panoramic sensing and prediction capabilities, collisions can be avoided by automatic braking or swerving as needed
