Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR QUANTITATIVELY ASSESSING COLLISION RISK AND SEVERITY
Abstract:
Systems and methods for quantitatively assessing collision risk of bodies, such as vehicles, and severity of a conflict between the bodies are disclosed. A method may comprise receiving image data associated with bodies. Based on the image data, an affinity (proneness) to collision of the bodies may be determined. Based on the determined affinity (proneness) to collision, a proximity (closeness) of collision of the bodies may be determined. Based on the determined proximity (closeness) of collision of the bodies, a collision risk of the bodies may be determined. The determined collision risk may be transmitted to a computing device, such as via a user interface. The determined collision risk may be used to control operations of a traffic control device or an autonomous vehicle.
