Pedestrian & Cyclist Collision Warning (PCW)
Why We Need It
Pedestrians and cyclists are the most vulnerable road users, especially in urban scenarios and where buses and trucks are manoeuvring in very crowded areas. Globally, pedestrians account for 22% of all road traffic fatalities.
How it Works
The System sends a visual and audio alert before an imminent collision with a pedestrian or cyclist, allowing the driver time to react. The Time to Collision (TTC) is calculated and when it drops below 2 seconds, a PCW is generated.
