This chapter presents the prototype system built for the Cooperative Intersection Collision Avoidance System for Violations (CICAS-V) project as well as the Mercedes-Benz Integrated Safety demonstration that was based on CICAS-V and was publicly showcased at the 15th Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) World Congress in New York City in 2008. The Integrated Safety demonstration showed a successful integration of CICAS-V with existing in-vehicle safety features. The goal of CICAS-V is to improve safety at intersections. The system relies on dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) to exchange safety messages in real time between a roadside unit (RSU) installed at an intersection and an onboard unit (OBU) installed on the vehicle.
