Application of Ultrasonic Technology to Obstacle Detection 952617

Truck and bus accidents result in several billion dollars of loss per year. The advanced warning and situation analysis that can be provided by Obstacle Detection Systems have been shown to have the potential to significantly reduce this loss. Ultrasonic detection technology has been applied to obstacle detection on this class of vehicles in short range and low relative velocity situations. Fleet field tests have shown that drivers, who generally expect perfect system performance, are the key to the successful expansion of the application of Obstacle Detection Devices.
