Collision avoidance is currently one of the main research areas in road intelligent transportation systems. Among the different possibilities available in the literature, the prediction of abrupt maneuvers has been shown to be useful in reducing the possibility of collisions. A supervised version of dynamic Fuzzy Adaptive System ART-based (dFasArt), which is a neuronal-architecture-based method that employs dynamic activation functions determined by fuzzy sets, is used for maneuver predicting and solving the problem of intervehicle collisions on roads. In this paper, it is shown how the dynamic character of dFasArt minimizes problems caused by noise in the sensors and provides stability on the predicted maneuvers. Several experiments with real data were carried out, and the SdFasArt results were compared with those achieved by an implementation of the Incremental Hierarchical Discriminant Regression (IHDR)-based method, showing the suitability of SdFasArt for maneuver prediction of road vehicles.
