A STUDY ON THE ACTUAL DETERMINATION OF THE BRAKING PARAMETERS OF THE VEHICLE BY MESURING THE DECELERATION/ACCELERATION AND THE STOPPING SPACE IN RELATION TO A BRAKE PEDAL TRIGGER SIGNAL, AS COMPARED TO THEIR CALCULATION AFTER THE BRAKING TRACES, AND IDENTIFYING THE DRIVING STYLE OF A DRIVER USING A BLACK BOX TYPE DEVICE

Abstract


This paper presents a “Black Box” device design and accomplished within the research project “Black Box and CRM type platform for risk
assessment and mitigation in road traffic” MYSMIS code 115919, the device monitor, acquire and record some functional and dynamic parameters
for motor vehicles in order to detect and report traffic risk situations, identifying the driving stile of a driver, violation of legislation as well as the
possibility of reconstructing road accidents or special traffic events. The materialization of this equipment resulted from the need to know and to
access useful data and information which can help forensic investigators in the case of an accident, insurers in the event of damage, specialists in
road safety and traffic monitoring, to medical staff dealing with victims or medical emergencies resulting from road accidents, or even drivers
looking to monitor the evolution of an event in which they were directly or indirectly involved as witnesses. All these data can also be saved to an
internal eMMC flash memory or to an external micro SDXC card making from this device a data logger. Stored information in black-box memory
can be encrypted to ensure the data confidentiality and protect the individual property rights. Stored data can be accessed via a CAN interface using
a key and a password. The Black-Box device can be simple integrated in vehicle's electronic control architecture, using provided CAN interface.
