Using high tech against the danger of blind spots

How easily it happens that a truck or bus driver overlooks a cyclist or pedestrian in his blind spot when turning. Traffic accidents, often with serious consequences for the weaker road users, are the result. The funding project SySiKo should pave the way to put an end to this source of danger.


The development of a vehicle-based system for the detection and signaling of a collision risk with weak road users in the blind spot area.
