RSE Traffic Gap Assist Functional Area
'RSE Traffic Gap Assist' provides advisory information to minor road drivers at a stop–sign controlled intersection to facilitate gap selection to proceed through the intersection. The application can be configured depending on the intersection geometry. It monitors Connected Vehicle traffic on the major road, augmenting infrastructure traffic detectors, to identify and measure traffic gaps. The intersection geometry, measured traffic gaps, and current gap assist sign displays are communicated to the connected vehicle that is navigating the intersection for use in driver advisories and warnings. The application may also collect vehicle size and performance profile from the connected vehicle to optimize the alerts and warnings to the capabilities of the vehicle and driver preferences.
