Volvo, the Swedish automotive company is in works to devise a brake system that can predict when a kangaroo will jump out in front of your car. The concept may seem far-fetched for those of us who do not live in a kangaroo-dominated country, however the same premise will apply to bicycles, moose and deer as well.
This brake system will use camera-based technology (in the windshield) and radar to help determine if there is a kangaroo that will run the risk of jumping out in front of your vehicle. If the driver is unable to react and stop the car, the brake system will do that automatically. This system will not only help to save the lives of animals crossing the road, it will also help to save the humans who are driving the vehicle.
The Volvo Kangaroo Brake System Will Save Lives
1. Animal-saving Brakes - Volvo's Kangaroo Brake System utilizes camera-based technology and radar to predict animal crossings, offering disruptive innovation opportunities in vehicle safety and animal protection.
1. Automotive - The automotive industry can explore disruptive innovation opportunities by incorporating camera-based technology and radar into brake systems to enhance safety features.
2. Transportation - The transportation industry can benefit from disruptive innovation by implementing advanced brake systems that automatically react to potential animal crossings, improving road safety for humans and animals alike.
3. Wildlife Conservation - The wildlife conservation industry can explore disruptive innovation opportunities by collaborating with automotive companies to develop systems that predict and respond to animal crossings, reducing wildlife fatalities on roads.
