The forward collision warning system for light rail vehicles combines a radar sensor with a video sensor to detect any cars, buses or other trams ahead. The central rail control unit processes information from both sensors, along with other factors, such as the speed of the tram, to provide a detailed image of the environment. The driver assistance system warns tram drivers of any impending collision: if the driver brakes too late, or not at all, the system engages the brakes independently to stop the tram and avoid an accident.
