This study is part of a project whose main objective is the design of driving assistance systems (ADAS) for elderly people (>65 years old) in order to make their movements safer when approaching an intersection. Indeed, as the figures reported by the ONISR show, crossing an intersection is an accident-prone maneuver responsible for 20% of road deaths in France. The first step of this project was to characterize the behavior of elderly people when crossing intersections in reference to that produced by young subjects.
