A supervised version of dFasArt, a neuronal architecture based method that employs dynamic activation functions determined by fuzzy sets is used for solving support of the problem of inter-vehicles collisions in roads. The dynamic character of dFasArt minimizes problems caused by noise in the sensors and provides stability on the predicted maneuvers. To test the proposed algorithm, several experiments with real data have been carried out, with good results.
