How can I see what is happening in blind spots?

Rear-view mirrors are not enough. AZIMUT Clear Vision is the only system that shows what is happening in areas which are not visible on the driver’s screen.

What does AZIMUT CLEAR VISION do?

The advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) and blind spot detection (double BSD) take charge of watching the road we are driving on and your surroundings in an exhaustive and proactive way.

It offers the driver total control of the situation:

  1. The system generates an event when:
    1. The pedestrian, cyclist or scooter encroaches on the safety area.
    2. There is an involuntary change of lane.
    3. The stopping distance is insufficient in relation with other vehicles.
  2. The image of the hazard situation is shown in high resolution on the driver’s screen.
  3. The screen alerts the driver in Spanish to indicate the hazard situation.
  4. All events and hazard situations can be recorded (configurable function).

 

How does it work?

The system works through a camera which monitors traffic conditions and other external elements parameterised as potentially dangerous. Its sensors capture all surroundings and send the information to an intelligent control unit, which calculates the risks and sends alerts and signals to the driver’s monitor.

Through the front camera and AI algorithm, the system continuously detects and measures:

  • pedestrians, cyclists and scooters in front of the vehicle.
  • continuous or discontinuous road markings.
  • the distance from the vehicle to other vehicles ahead.

 

The cameras

These cameras have high sensitivity and incorporate infrared, therefore operating both at night and during the day without problems. Additionally, they can function effectively in the worst visibility conditions, detecting and measuring aspects which would go unnoticed by the human eye.

The control unit

The processing unit is located on the bus, and is able to analyse information in milliseconds thanks to its powerful processors and an optimised artificial intelligence algorithm. It also has deep learning (or automated self-learning) technology, which allows it to improve through continuous experience and thereby improve its precision.

The alerts

The monitoring panel located on the driver’s control panel shows the situations clearly and visibly, all through sound alerts in Spanish which allow the driver to clearly identify the level of risk.
The system also has an exterior speaker, which emits an alert to warn the pedestrian, cyclist or scooter of the hazard situation, and allows them to react accordingly.

 

What does it monitor?

  • Nothing of importance escapes the eyes of the Azimut advanced driver-assistance system. It pays attention.
  • It is able to identify pedestrians in the trajectory of the buses and evaluate the risk of collision, also avoiding uncontrolled reactions of your drivers.
  • It detects the lines marked on the road and sends an alert when there is an involuntary change of lane.
  • It monitors the distance from other vehicles and evaluates possibilities and risks of collision.
  • It sends an alert when there is insufficient stopping distance.

 

Why should you incorporate it in your fleet?

Far from reducing the attention of your drivers, the Azimut system keeps them alert and allows them to focus their attention on other aspects inherent to driving, which are of vital importance. In turn, it allows information to be recorded which would otherwise be unavailable. For example, your driver obviously knows the safe distance necessary to brake without colliding with the vehicle in front; but they surely cannot know the exact distance at all times, much less instantly calculate the required distance based on their speed.
In short, the ADAS system facilitates the work of your drivers, making their activity easier and reducing fatigue and stress, above all in adverse conditions.
