ZF’s Collision Mitigation System
The industry’s first Independent Collision Mitigation System (CMS) solution designed specifically for city buses operating in complex urban environments meets the public transportation sector’s increasing safety demands. The system can actively respond to vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians in or entering the vehicle path, assisting in the avoidance or mitigation of impending collisions and protecting unsecured bus passengers. If an impending collision is detected, the system can issue a Forward Collision Warning and automatically apply the brakes. Built on OnGuardMAX system, the solution delivers performance tailored to city bus applications. Data integration of cameras and radar enables advanced object classification and sophisticated situational analysis. It is equipped with an integrated event data recorder enabling critical event analysis. Moreover, it offers additional optional functionality such as High Beam Assist, Lane Data, and Traffic Sign Interface. This system is applicable to electric and internal combustion engine city buses.
