Session Description

This panel will discuss ITS approaches from around the country to improve intersection safety. Several states have deployed infrastructure based intersection safety systems that warn drivers on the through roadway and/or drivers waiting at stop signs. Minnesota has experimented with Cooperative Intersection Collision Avoidance Systems (CICAS) for and stop sign assist (CICAS-SSA) as part of a broader USDOT funded CICAS program. The USDOT's Safety Pilot program will also demonstrate Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) intersection collision warnings. ITS also aids in accessibility for pedestrians with impaired vision at signalized intersections. This panel will discuss this landscape of initiatives and consider what the ITS future may hold for intersection safety.
