On Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2016 at 11 a.m. Pacific/2 p.m. Eastern, Rosco Vision Systems will hold its webinar “An In-Depth Look into Blind Zones Around a Bus and How to Eliminate Them,” with Peter Plate, director, sales & marketing, for Rosco.

We are living in a safety society where emerging technologies help us live and work more effectively and efficiently. This includes striving for zero traffic fatalities. Advances in collision avoidance systems have equipped cars with forward collision warning, speed alert, and pedestrian detection technology. In a few years, every car on the road will have these safety technologies in use, resulting in safer roads for vehicles and vulnerable road users (VRUs), including pedestrians and cyclists.

The webinar will provide an in-depth look into the driving environment of large transit buses. Many of us cannot appreciate the complexities that come with operating a 40-foot or larger vehicle and maneuvering around VRUs in a busy urban environment. These complexities multiply when the vehicle is turning; blind zones widen and the probability of collisions increase. These complexities multiply further when VRU distraction due to phones, tablets, and other devices are at an all-time high, and trending upward.

This is where the evolution of technology comes into play. The same collision avoidance technology that has proven to work in cars has been developed to adapt to larger vehicles. With multiple smart vision sensors placed strategically around the bus, the Mobileye Shield+ system covers blind zones in the front and sides of the bus where a driver has limited visibility. Tune in and learn how this smart technology can help you gather data and help identify “hot spots” on a bus route or location. To fix a problem, it must first be identified… See how Shield+ can help you do both.
