Camera Monitor Systems as a source for driver information

HFC is starting a new project commissioned by the Bundesanstalt für Straßenwesen (BASt, German Federal Highway Research Institute) to investigate camera monitor systems (CMS) in a real world driving scenario.

Camera Monitor System

Such systems enable a video-assisted monitoring of the rear vehicle area via one or more monitors inside the vehicle. The projects purpose is to check perception, behavior, and safety issues related to the performance of a CMS compared to conventional exterior mirrors and to conclude possible requirements for future CMS.

More information can be found in the description of the project.
