The technology behind the Safety Shield cameras
Example of one of the Safety Shield intelligent cameras mounted on the ‘blindside’ of a bus in a busy European city center. This video shows how the technology of the camera works, picking up pedestrians and cyclists while calculating points to collision.
The green box around selected vulnerable road users shows that the camera has detected them as vulnerable but is not warning the driver as a collision is not imminent. The numbers shown above the green box is the camera calculating the time to a collision if it was imminent. As we pride ourselves on reducing driver distraction, this footage isn’t shown on any monitor or screen, this is just to show how the Safety Shield technology works.
If the camera was to calculate an imminent collision, the box would turn red and the driver of the vehicle would be alerted via our PCW Display (a picture of this display can be found above) Its a small display, placed on either A-post of the cab, with a red flashing pedestrian on, it will also alert the driver via an audible alarm, giving them up to 2.7 seconds to react to the warning. Therefore acting like a drivers third eye, whilst reducing the risk of driver distraction.
