Accidents at crossroads or intersections account for half of all fatal accident occurrences in Japan. Research and development for accident prevention system in such situations is ongoing in Japan and abroad. In order to develop an appropriate accident prevention system, the authors studied the effectiveness of accident prevention systems such as (a) road-to-vehicle cooperation system, (b) vehicle-to-vehicle cooperation system and (c) autonomous system to the near miss incident scene classified by its occurrence mechanism. It was found that each system proves effective in preventing an accident that could arise from near miss incident scene.
