MOIS – Moving off Information System
PSS Requirement – Requiring that Moving Off Information Systems (MOIS) must be fitted to the front of vehicles to prevent collisions at the frontal blind spot zone when a vehicle moves off from rest.
From TFL – Vehicles that are approved to UNECE Regulation 159 will be deemed to comply with all of these requirements.
We have been developing a radar based MOIS system. It is UNECE Regulation 159 compliant which means it fully meets the PSS requirements. The basics are that it will detect a likely collision and increase from warning level 1 to level 2 based on this information. It will not pick up street furniture and is designed for vulnerable road users.
BSD System – Blind Spot Detection
PSS Requirement – Requiring that sensors must ensure full coverage down the nearside of all vehicles to detect vulnerable road users (and must not activate in relation to roadside furniture of stationary vehicles).
From TFL – Vehicles that are approved to UNECE Regulation 151 will be deemed to comply with all of these requirements.
We have been developing a radar based BSD system. It is UNECE Regulation 151 compliant which means it fully meets the PSS requirements. The basics are that it will detect a likely collision and increase from warning level 1 to level 2 based on this information. It will not pick up street furniture and is designed for vulnerable road users.
CMS System – Camera Monitoring System
PSS Requirement – Requiring that CMS fitted on vehicles must eliminate any remaining blind spots at the nearside.
As previously with DVS a nearside camera and monitor is required. These would be the standard ones purchased from us as normal.
PSS Requirement – Requirement of fitting audio warnings to all vehicles, including those with left hand drive, to ensure all vehicles can warn vulnerable road users of an intended manoeuvre.
Indications from talks we had were that vehicles were being fined for external alarms being active during nighttime hours. Whilst not specified so far in TFL documents we have a feeling the final one will mention a requirement to have the system shut off at night. We have a GPS version of our multi-function left, right and reverse alarm that automatically silences between 10pm and 7am.
Warning Sticker – (Included with BSD Systems)
PSS Requirement – Warning signage requirements remain unchanged.
This means a blind spot sticker is required. We will provide this with the BSD system.
Sidescans – This is not a requirement, but is just something we have thought about
As the new regulations say sensor systems must not false positive on street furniture we have a feeling that accidents may increase on stationary objects and therefore cause insurance premiums to rise. Due to this we would recommend keeping any existing side scans and offering our PZ-400 for new installs as an added product. The beep can be set to 400mm and used as an accident protection system.
