Samenvatting The paper reports the simulation activities planned in the first six months of 2000 aiming at investigating the possibility of reducing the number of accidents in cross-roads through the use of on board systems. This research, lead within the European Project LACOS, the fourth framework research programme project funded by DG XIIIC, investigates on the potential benefit which can be introduced by the use of electronic on board devices. These devices could be derived as extension from those already developed within the project LACOS. Some hypotheses are done in order to describe the features of these systems, both considering automatic and warning activation. Their features are implemented in an already existing accident simulator and analysed in different scenarios of traffic and equipment taking into account different vehicular speed, flow, flow composition, braking capability, road surface adherence and device capability.
