This document describes currently available pre-crash classifications that specify the
conflict situation between road traffic actors that leads to a crash. This document
describes classifications that are based on different real-world crash data types and
collection origins. The focus is on the assessment of attributes and characteristics of
different approaches and their applicability to data-driven traffic safety research.
This document provides considerations for choosing an appropriate pre-crash situation
classification to address the traffic safety research questions that require analysis of
real-world crash data.
This document does not address test scenarios that describe the operation domain of
assisted or automated driving systems.
