About forty percent of all accidents occur at intersections. The Intelligent Cooperative Intersection Safety system (IRIS), as part of the European research project SAFESPOT, is a roadside application and aims at minimizing the number of accidents at controlled and uncontrolled intersections. IRIS uses vehicle-to-infrastructure communication to track and analyze the movements of all individual vehicles. A key element of IRIS is to identify dangerous situations in time and take the appropriate measure to prevent collisions. This paper presents the concept of IRIS, points out the complexity of intersections and addresses the usefulness and results of a driving simulator study.
