VCAS PSR008 Pedestrian/Cyclist detection (PCD) system

Live badge

CycleSafe/VRU Nearside Pedestrian/Cyclist Detection system using ultrasonic technology specifically designed for LGV and HGV’s. When the vehicle slows to around 10 Mph, and the left indicator is turned on, the system will flash the internal display to show turn “On”, then just monitors that area until an object is detected or until the vehicle’s speed increases over 10 Mph or the indicator is on >1m detection.

VCAS PCD

With the increase of fuel costs and views on health and fitness, more and more cyclists and pedestrians are sharing the roads with our vehicles. With this and the blind spots down the nearside on larger vehicles, the dangers of accidents causing injury and deaths has increased.

We have all had it where a cyclist will nip up the inside between the curb and the vehicle. If this is not seen by the driver then the cyclist is virtually invisible.

If the vehicle is turning left, the driver is only aware of the cyclist when he pops out in front when the traffic lights change to green.

Often cyclists are not aware when they nip up the inside of a vehicle, that it is turning left at a set of traffic lights. Cyclists are not the only ones in danger. Pedestrians always seem to be in a hurry and often step up too close to the curb and sometimes onto the road. They too don’t understand that a large vehicle turning the corner can often cut across the curb.

The ultrasonic detection system

The VCAS Pedstrian/Cyclist Detection system is an ultrasonic sensor system specifically designed to be a warning system not only for the driver but also to make the cyclist aware of a turning vehicle. Using an ultrasonic detection system, it can give the driver adequate warning time to adjust his manoeuvre The pedestrians and cyclists will get an optional warning too, to allow them to step back and to move away from a dangerous position.
