Road-traffic-incident analysis has shown that 52% of incidents are caused by a collision between two vehicles or between a vehicle and an obstacle. In this paper, the REduce Speed of Collision Under Emergency (RESCUE) collision-mitigation system (version 1.0) is presented and evaluated toward various typical road situations. The aim of the RESCUE system is to decrease the kinetic energy dissipated during a collision through automatic emergency braking that occurs 1 s before the collision. This emergency braking is triggered by an alarm coming from a decision unit taking into consideration the results of a generic obstacle-detection system-based on fusion between stereovision and laser scanner-and a warning area in front of the vehicle. The different subsystems are presented. Then, the behavior of the RESCUE collision-mitigation system toward various typical dangerous road situations is assessed through systematic tests. These quantitative tests are completed by qualitative ones carried out on 737 km of open roads (freeways, highways, rural roads, downtown) to provide a more precise idea about the false-alarm rate. The experiments show the system is promising in terms of reliability, genericity, and efficiency
