چکیده:

Today Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), as a field of ITS, are so ٣ important to reduce the number of driver errors and thereby the number of ۴ accidents. Time to collision (TTC) is an important time based safety indicator ۵ for detecting rear-end conflicts in traffic safety evaluations. TTC, refers to the ۶ time remaining before the rear-end accident if the course and speed of vehicles ٧ are maintained. TTC, has proven to be an effective measure for discriminating٨ critical from normal behaviors in car-following situations. TTC is also used in ٩ Collision Avoidance Systems (CAS), which is an example of ADAS, as a ١٠ proper warning strategy. A major weakness of the TTC notion is the ١١ assumption of constant velocities during the course of an accident. In this ١٢ paper we utilize equations of motion to develop a generalized formulation for ١٣ TTC by relaxing the assumption of constant velocity, constant acceleration ١۴ and so on. This paper also illustrates how this concept can be applied to real ١۵ world data, therefore the comprehensive and detailed data gathered in the ١۶ NGSIM project on I-80 freeway is used. Then, car following situations are ١٧ chosen from this data and for more simplicity, TTC is just calculated based on ١٨ the assumption of constant speed, constant acceleration and linear acceleration ١٩ for leading&following vehicles. Results indicate that, in the third case (linear ٢٠ acceleration) the average duration of exposing to critical TTC values is greater ٢١ than the others. So applying TTCs based on the assumption of linear ٢٢ acceleration in CAS, would decrease driver errors more than other cases.
