Given the catastrophic results of an incident involving a large vehicle versus a Vulnerable Road User such as a bicyclist, pedestrian, or motorcyclist, collisions and the difficulties of protecting these VRUs, the simplest solution would be to prohibit these forms of transportation from traveling on the streets and roads designed for vehicles. This solution, while it may seem like a practical answer, is in fact impractical, socially unacceptable, and counterproductive to the overall advancement of society.

Upon reading Protecting Vulnerable Road Users with Side Object Detection Technology you will have a better understanding of:

  • What is a Vulnerable Road User
  • How to make roadways safer for Vulnerable Road Users
  • Why passive solutions are of limited use for safety
  • How acting proactively and utilizing Side Object Detection Technology can reverse a troubling trend and save lives
