Early safety reminder

So that the driver can maintain oversight in a sea of signs: The traffic sign detection system detects the signage on the road in front of the bus thanks to a camera on the windscreen and reliably shows the currently applicable requirements on the 12-inch driver’s display. If, for example, the speed limit is exceeded, the system reminds the driver of the current regulations using visual and acoustic warnings. The tolerance of the warning signal can be individually adjusted in the vehicle menu, for infringements from 0 to 3 km/h.

In coaches with a navigation system, the system can even display regulations such as bans on entry, height and weight restrictions or specific hazards – caused, for example, by traffic jams. In this way, it not only relieves the driver, but it can also help prevent accidents.
