Bosch Engineering Tram Forward Collision Warning System

Electronic Passenger for Trams

Tram drivers need full concentration, otherwise a collision with other vehicles can occur at any time. The development service provider Bosch Engineering has developed an innovative driver assistance system that initially warns the driver in good time of an imminent collision. If the driver does not intervene or intervenes too late, the system automatically brakes the track to a standstill.

The collision warning system combines a video and radar sensor with a powerful control unit. The radar sensor measures distance and speed to cars, buses and other trams in front. The video sensor records the course of the track and, for example, detects transverse movements earlier and more precisely. The system is being used successfully in series production in several European cities. A further development of the system will include the detection of pedestrians and cyclists. Further functions are currently being tested and developed in studies with partners.
