Abstract:This thesis describes the set up of an evaluation of the Intelligent Cooperative Intersection Safety (IRIS) system. The prerequisites for evaluation of this system are researched and described. The most important Surrogate Safety Measures that can be acquired are described briefly and those chosen are worked out in detail. After a discussion concerning various simulation models, the simulation model MARS is selected as a generator for intersection data. Using this tool, the evaluation of the Data Fusion Module subsystem of IRIS is initiated, by doing a sensitivity analysis of the operation of this system with biased GPS input measurements. This experiment shows that the system is capable of reducing the disturbing effects of biased GPS input. It also leads to recommendations about the further development of the Data Fusion Module and the future use of MARS in evaluating traffic safety.
