Blind Spot Detection – Protecting Vulnerable Road Users
11.11.2018
Collision Avoidance

Probably the most important step toward smarter, greener cities is learning how to integrate a wide variety of transportation types. Cutting down on private cars is key to reducing congestion and pollution but they need to be replaced by something – walking and cycling are the greenest substitutes, supplemented by buses for mass transportation. And of course lorries will always be needed for deliveries and other services that just can’t be replaced. This is where smart city planners hit a stumbling block – roads are being dominated by both larger vehicles and the most vulnerable road users – pedestrians and cyclists.

Safer Buses = Safer Roads in Japan
05.11.2017
Collision Avoidance, Fleet Safety

When we get in our cars and buckle our seatbelts, or step onto a bus and hold the hand grip, we don't tend to think about the vast number of safety features protecting us. The development and enforcement of automotive safety features is often taken for granted. It is mind-boggling to think that not so long ago seatbelts or airbags weren’t mandatory and even after their introduction were only optional, or available for front-seat passengers only. The development and implementation of automotive safety features throughout the 20<sup>th</sup> century and until today have without question helped to save countless lives. And as we close the first two decades of the 21<sup>st</sup> century we are witnessing both the quick development and wide adoption of increased safety standards around the globe. As we move towards more sophisticated and essential safety features so does the world of safety regulation and legislation. Countries across the globe are increasingly expanding automotive regulation and safety practices as new technology becomes available. One such recent case is a new mandate from the Japanese government.

Distracted Walking – a New Challenge to Pedestrian Safety

Collision Avoidance

More than once per day, a pedestrian is killed by a motor vehicle in Great Britain. In reality, it doesn’t happen as precisely as that. The once-per-day mark is an average tabulated from a total of 446 pedestrian deaths in 2014, the most recent full year of data. But no matter how the number is viewed, it represents a 12 percent increase in pedestrian fatalities as compared with 2013, according to a recent <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/438040/reported-road-casualties-in-great-britain-main-results-2014-release.pdf">report</a> by the Department for Transport.
