Pedestrian avoidance safety system, pass.
Passive pedestrian collision warning systems provide visual and audible warnings, like beeps and flashing lights. These warnings, however, compete for drivers’ attention in a complex environment with traffic, passengers, vehicle noise, and other distractions. Every fraction of a second lost in driver reaction time to an impending collision is critical. Adding PASS technology to passive detection systems recovers this critical time with reaction times 50x faster than the typical human, resulting in immediate reductions in vehicle speed. With active vehicle control, drivers have more time and distance to bring buses to a controlled stop. During product testing, results show PASS reacts to pedestrian hazards up to 2 sec. faster than a driver with passive only indicators.
REDUCE COLLISIONS WITH PASS.
Reacts to pedestrian hazards up to 2 seconds faster than a driver’s response to passive only indicators
Integrates with a broad range of systems, including the latest in pedestrian detection and warning sensor systems
Automatically decelerates a vehicle when an imminent pedestrian collision is detected
Time is critical
A transit bus operator must deal with various factors competing for their attention in urban driving conditions. PASS can automatically decelerate a vehicle when an imminent pedestrian collision is detected to help drivers avoid or reduce the severity of a collision with pedestrians and bicyclists.
ACTIVE VEHICLE CONTROL
Give drivers more time to react
PASS determines — within a fraction of a second —if automatic action is required. PASS can also be configured using deceleration feature selections and filtering across a wide range of vehicle platforms, route characteristics, and transit agency preferences.

Reduce collisions with pedestrians and bicyclists
Transit bus operators must deal with an array of factors competing for their attention in urban driving conditions. Pedestrians and bicyclists in the path of a bus represent a significant liability making response time critical. To help drivers avoid or reduce the severity of a collision, the Pedestrian Avoidance Safety System (PASS) can automatically decelerate a vehicle when an imminent pedestrian collision is detected.
PASS utilizes a complex set of proprietary sensor fusion algorithms to integrate the latest pedestrian sensor technologies with automated powertrain and braking system control. Monitoring collision warning sensors and vehicle dynamics, PASS determines — within a fraction of a second — if automatic action is required. PASS can be configured across a wide range of vehicle platforms, route characteristics, and transit agency preferences.
