Revolutionizing road safety and championing the protection of Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs), this project aims to take Advanced Emergency Braking Systems (AEBS) to new heights under any lighting conditions.

Picture this:

A cutting-edge, long-range, automotive-grade thermal imaging solution that will be seamlessly integrated behind the windshield, the AEBS becomes an unstoppable guardian, swiftly detecting and thwarting potential dangers on the road. From pitch-black nights to glaring sunsets, drivers and pedestrians alike can now breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that accidents involving VRUs will be remarkably reduced, and our roads will be safer than ever before.

Get ready to witness the future of road safety, where innovation meets compassion on the open highways.

We do believe – Once a Luxury, Today a Necessity!
