SKY General information: The SKY project is a field test of applications already available on the market or coming soon. It is carried out by a large number of ordinary people in real traffic conditions. The SKY project started with several initiatives such as intelligent speed advisory testing with 2,000 participants around primary schools, intersection collision avoidance using V2I with the same number of participants, small children traffic safety using RFID with 300 participants, pedestrian traffic safety using GPS cell phone by 700 participants, hazard warning on winter road by 150 participants, real time probe car data collection by 2,700 vehicles, etc.
This FOT is in order to grasp the effectiveness of “Intersection collision avoidance", such as crossing collision avoidance, stop sign violation avoidance, red signal violation avoidance, and rear end collision avoidance at red signal queue.

Applications and equipment
Intersection collision avoidance, such as crossing collision avoidance, stop sign violation avoidance, red signal violation avoidance, and rear end collision avoidance at red signal queue
2,000 regular passenger cars
Equipment carried by test users
Infra Red Light Beacon for data communication and driver behavior change monitoring
- Infra Red Light Beacon
- Intersection side video cameras
Pre-simulation / Piloting of the FOT
Method for the baseline
Techniques for measurement and data collection
2 points of road side unit before the intersection get participants real time running data via V2I communication by IR beacon.
Objective: Real time running data logging system by road side units Subjective: Questionnaire survey, and interview.
Availability of data: Contact FOT contact person.
Recruitment goals and methods
2000 ordinary drivers in their every day car life. Ordinary drivers, Nissan customers, who live in Yokohama city who answered yes with some incentives, free 3 media VICS beacon on-board antenna and free car navigation map database update.
The number of participants, 2,000, was decided on the premise that some participants would never come to the test sites (9 intersections in Yokohama city).
Methods for the liaison with the drivers during the FOT execution
Participants were occasionally asked to fill a questionnaire survey. Participants just used their car like they do in everyday life.
Methods for data analysis, evaluation, synthesis and conclusions
Using the logged and stored data, statistical analysis may show whether or not there is some difference between the data with/without safety support information or system.
