Ko-FAS Research Initiative

Cooperative Sensor Systems and Cooperative Perception Systems for Preventive Road Safety

The aim of the Ko-FAS research initiative is to make a significant contribution to the improvement of road safety, i.e. to reduce the number of accidents and to minimise their consequences.

In order to do so, the Ko-FAS research initiative has developed new technologies, components and systems that use cooperative sensor systems and perception systems to provide road users with a comprehensive view of the traffic around them.

This makes it possible to detect critical situations early, so that preventive measures can be taken to avoid accident situations, or at least to reduce the consequences of accidents.

The above-mentioned technologies rely on the interaction of sensors attached to the different road users, and use state-of-the-art communication technology to exchange data between them.
