ACAS:- Active Collision Avoidance System
Introducing our newest product and innovation the ACAS Active Collision Avoidance System, which takes our Active Reversing System and improves upon it further.
Every vehicle has a blind spot, a space surrounding the vehicle which the driver can't see, which can decrease site safety and in return increase the likelihood of an accident. Due to these invisible spaces, vehicles and/or objects can be damaged or people can get injured. Think of the blind spot on the right side of a vehicle when turning which makes a right turn risky, or the space behind a truck when reversing. ACAS provides the driver with accurate information about the free space, behind and besides the vehicle. This in turn increases site safety as well and reassuring the driver of his immediate surroundings.
The scope of the system:
On selection of the reverse direction, the detection system becomes active, allowing the driver to reverse as normal. If however an object or person is detected in the path of the reversing vehicle that the driver misses (because of blind spots etc.), then the system will assist by giving the driver firstly a warning, then secondly further assistance with the progressive application of braking force until the vehicle comes to a halt.
If the object / person can be driven around in reverse, an override button giving an audible warning and also a reduced speed can be used by the driver to allow the continuation in reverse.
The equipment is designed to not inhibit the use of the OEM braking system and works independently in a way to give ultimate control to the driver.
