Pedestrian Backup Assist System (PBS)
Each year in the United States, there are dozens of back-over accidents (AP). These are accidents where a driver backs over an unsuspecting or unaware pedestrian, and usually occur at low speeds due to driver blind spots. The victims are mostly the elderly and small children who are not mobile or aware enough to get out of harm’s way. The fact that these accidents happen at slow speeds and quite often off road means that they can often be avoided by providing drivers with adequate information (warnings or displays) and automatic countermeasures. This document describes a system to minimize back-over accidents by intentionally increasing in the driver’s situational awareness and assisting the driver with braking when obstacles are present.
The overall goal of the project is to avoid back-over accident
