This system cannot be modeled by a discrete time system. It requires the description of asynchronously operating interacting components (vehicle models and controller models). By abstracting the space of possible velocities to a finite set of possible velocities this system can be described by interacting input/output automata, with different hierarchical layers. At the top level there is the model describing the location of the vehicles in the work space, and the availability of radio communication at different locations. At the lower layer there are all the actions taken by the vehicles and by their local controllers. This is exactly the type of problem that can be modeled by the recently developed theory of world automata (Capiluppi and Segala, 2011). This paper describes a set of local control laws and rules that can avoid collisions even in case the vehicles cannot communicate with their neighbors, using world automata with 2 hierarchical layers.

Because the streets are not as reliable as once thought.  Several automotive industry professionals are going back to the production design prototype concept table to increase safety options that are now available for consumers. These options available to consumers help protect drivers, passengers and pedestrians from harm. Safety systems help protect drivers, passengers, people in other vehicles on the road, as well as, pedestrians. Multi-feature active safety packages automate pre-collision warning and braking. These designs also support the driver’s awareness, decision-making and vehicle operation over a wide range of speeds under certain conditions. Within these integrated system, Key features help address areas of accident protection that were at one time were not feasible.  These key features help to: mitigate or prevent frontal collisions; helping to keep drivers within their lane; and enhancing road safety during nighttime driving. Always drive safely, obey traffic speed limits and laws, and focus on the road while driving.  Distracted Driving is becoming the number one reason for fatalities on our nations roads.  To minimize the impact of Distracted Driving in this era of Connected Vehicle Systems and Increasingly complex computer applications & monitoring…the automotive industry has created a standard evaluation checklist for what a 5-Star Pedestrian, Driver and Vehicle Safety Design Looks Like.

  • Side-impact protection
  • Whiplash-minimizing seats
  • Rigid passenger compartments
  • Child occupant category
  • Safety assist
  • Lane-departure warning
  • Autonomous emergency braking
  • Pedestrian forward collision warning
  • Electronic stability control
  • Tire-pressure monitoring
  • Blind-spot monitoring
  • Rear cross-traffic alerts
  • Reversing camera
  • GPS navigation system

To go a bit farther the Automotive Industry this year recognized the Alfa Romeo Giulia as number one in occupant protection!
