The Future of Van Safety The Future of Van Safety Infographic Transcript

  • Your Guide to Van Safety Tech, Now and in the Future Safety is a priority for vehicle manufacturers when developing new technology. Minimising the risk for drivers means safer roads for everyone. Here’s your guide to the technology that’s making vans safer now and what may become standard in the future. Now Adaptive Cruise Control Blind Spot DetectionLane Departure eCall V2V Augmented Reality Hydrogen Fuel Cell The Future eCall Designed to bring rapid help to drivers involved in a collision anywhere in the European Union, eCall is an initiative that helps save lives through technology. If you’re in a collision, eCall will call 112 (the common emergency number in Europe) and wirelessly send impact sensor information and GPS coordinates to the local emergency services. Lane Departure If you leave your lane without indicating, Lane Departure tech will let you know about it. Cameras on top of the vehicle detect lane markings. If the vehicle starts to drift without indicating, an alert sounds out or vibrations are sent through the steering wheel or seat. Blind Spot Detection More and more manufacturers are developing tech to help drivers become aware of hidden threats. Blind Spot Detection does exactly what you might think - cameras detect vehicles moving into your blind spot, activating warning signals on your wing mirrors to make you aware of the threat. Adaptive Cruise Control Already in some cars, this crash avoidance tech is steadily becoming mainstream. Sensors measure the distance between cars, and if the gap closes the brakes are automatically applied - if the driver doesn’t react fast enough - to keep a safe distance between the two vehicles. Hydrogen Fuel Already in some cars, this crash avoidance tech is steadily becoming mainstream. Sensors measure the distance between cars, and if the gap closes the brakes are automatically applied - if the driver doesn’t react fast enough - to keep a safe distance between the two vehicles. Augmented Reality Building augmented reality into the windscreen of a vehicle gives drivers a heads-up display, providing traffic and weather information, as well vehicle logistics. It could also display safety information, using sensors to show safe distance details and manoeuvring options, without distracting the driver from the road. V2V Vehicle to vehicle (V2V) tech is a high priority for many manufacturers. Enabling vehicles to communicate with each other - wirelessly passing information on speed, location and direction - will reduce collisions by increasing awareness around projected paths and safe distances. Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) tech - where cars could communicate to road signals - is also in development. Let’s drive business® http://business.tomtom.com/blog
