GPS COLLISION AVOIDANCE SYSTEM - PROXIMITY DETECTION SYSTEMS
PRINCIPAL OF OPERATION
The CAS GPS system is designed as a market entry driver’s aid that provides 3600 situational awareness of objects in proximity to a heavy vehicle during stationary, slow speed and high speed operations in order to reduce the risk of vehicle to vehicle, vehicle to infrastructure and vehicle to personnel interactions:
- All vehicles are fitted with a GPS receiver, vehicle-to-vehicle (V-V) radio link and vehicle display unit.
- The system automatically detects obstacles within critical zones around a vehicle and notifies the driver with progressive audible alerts and radar style graphic alerts on the vehicle display unit.
- Alarming is based on real-time predictive algorithms based on heading, speed, stopping distance , vehicle / object type and distance.
- Alarm rules are displayed visually providing the driver with situational awareness information in order to avoid a high risk interaction.
