Evaluating Risk Levels of Driver Behavior on Basis of Highest Admitted Speed

Event: JSAE Spring Conference
In our previous study, we developed a method for evaluating the risk level of a driver's behavior when passing through a non-signalized intersection without the right of way by using data on the position and speed of the driver's vehicle, and on the driver's eye movement and pedal operations. We defined the highest admitted speed (HAS), which is the highest speed of a crossing vehicle at which safety is ensured for two specified collision patterns. In this study, we review the definition of HAS, discuss a variety of HASs under different collision situations, and consider a practical and effective use of HAS for safe driving education.
