   BRIGADE LAUNCHES NEW PREDICTIVE COLLISION DETECTION SYSTEM
  V ehicle safety systems provider Brigade
Electronics has launched a new predictive collision detection system.
Sidescan®Predict has been developed with support from the Knowledge Transfer Partnership initiative with Cambridge University, with the aim of creating a cost- effective and reliable collision detection system that can intelligently discriminate potential collisions and warn the driver with sufficient time for intervention
– a predictive system.
Having been in development and undergone rigorous testing for more
than seven years, including 10,000 hours of research, Sidescan®Predict had its first trials in 2020, receiving excellent driver feedback. Drivers noticed a significant reduction in the risk of collision with vulnerable road users and static objects.
By using artificial intelligence, SideScan®Predict constantly gathers object detection data, such as the speed and distance of a cyclist or other vulnerable road user from the lorry. Additional technology is embedded within the system to gather information such as
the speed, direction, acceleration, and the turning rate of a vehicle. This data feeds an algorithm created by Brigade to calculate the risk of a collision with cyclists and pedestrians who are nearby the vehicle.
