Proximity Sensors

Optical Sensor prevents traffic crashes in urban areas.

By scanning up to 10 m in front of vehicle, closing velocity (CV) sensor helps drivers completely avoid or reduce severity of collisions when traveling at speeds under 25 mph. If calculated distance determines imminent collision, system responds by putting brakes on alert mode to ensure sufficient pressure for stopping. System also initiates automatic braking up to 0.5 g if driver takes foot off...
