collision probability

[kə′lizh·ən ‚präb·ə‚bil·əd·ē]
(physics)
The ratio of the cross section for a given type of collision between two particles to the total cross section for all types of collision between the particles.

In order to lower collision probability, the instant chosen for transmitting broadcast packets within control cycle must be stochastic.
For a number of vehicles in the vicinity as high as N = 40, even with previous consideration, the collision probability of a single broadcast packet would be higher than p > 0.
Collision probability may be dramatically improved only by slotting the channel, which is especially easy in our case because the size of all the packets exchanged by our system will have a constant well-known size.
It should be noticed that a 160 [micro]s high-level slot size accomplishes the condition given to optimize collision probability under our conditions.
As soon as a pedestrian is detected, Arcure's device assesses the collision probability.
Alfano is most recognized for pioneering work in kinetic energy guidance, satellite visibility, high- accuracy orbit determination, continuous-thrust orbit transfers, and collision probability.
Patera is performing analytical work in the areas of orbit collision probability as well as space vehicle re-entry and breakup.
Among the topics of individual papers were: adaptive pulse width modulation, identification of a tethered satellite using a Kalman Filter, effects of cross correlated covariance on spacecraft collision probability, and examination of NORAD TLE accuracy using the Iridium Constellation.
