Building on an 80-year expertise in rear vision and on its business unit Safety Tech, dedicated to Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, Vision Systems will showcase its camera monitoring system Smart-Vision, that replaces the rearview mirrors with high-definition cameras and interior displays. Developed by Safety Tech, Smart-Vision is an innovative and efficient solution for buses and coaches, providing optimized visibility and enhanced ergonomics. The system operates night and day, in every weather and in any driving environment. Compared with standard rearview mirrors, the interior displays eliminate glare and the automatic adjustment of the screens’ brightness ensures excellent visibility in all lighting conditions.
The Savety-Front solution, a smart anti-collision system most particularly designed for urban vehicles to reduce the number of accidents in town, can be added to the Smart-Vision solution. Consisting of intelligent and configurable sensors, it alerts the driver when a risk of collision with a vehicle, cyclist or pedestrian is detected. The anticipation of collision is based on path comparison, taking into account the road users’ position, speed and direction. The solution differentiates a road user who represents a potential collision danger from another one who does not; if there is no collision risk, the alert does not activate. The system can also include guidance and maneuver assistance, video recording for insurances and statistics on risk areas for drivers’ training or improvement of urban space.
Another driver assistance system developed by Safety Tech is the Savety-Mirror solution, based on image analysis. The solution alone, that comprises side cameras next to the rearview mirrors and an interior display, provides improved visibility, lane changing assistance, blind spot detection, high-speed and long-distance vehicle detection and monitoring of the vehicle’s surrounding. This system can be integrated into the Smart-Vision solution without additional camera.
Smart-Vision not only offers greater driving comfort and safety, but also allows a high return on investment, by significantly cutting fuel consumption thanks to improved aerodynamics, and by reducing insurance and maintenance costs, while maximizing the vehicle’s availability with payback scenarios between 18 and 30 months.
