Paper title: Risk map generation system for intelligent vehicles on community roads via data-driven approach

In this study, a new data-driven method for constructing a risk map for intelligent vehicles was developed to realize an adaptive proactive braking intervention system based on the risk levels of the driving environment, aiming at preventing traffic accidents on non-signalized crossroads with poor visibility on community roads. We then confirmed the usefulness of the proposed method by confirming that it could estimate risk levels consistent with driving instructors at driving schools using general driver driving data obtained in public road driving experiments.
