As a reminder, Project Yellow’s objective is to create a detection and alert software to improve highway worksite safety. This project is led by competitive poles and was recently selected for the 19th funding round of Inter-Ministerial Investment Fund. In 2013, over 100 serious accidents were recorded on France’s highways. Project Yellow is based on an integrated mobile collision warning system. The system consists in two main components:
- Vehicle detection as they enter the worksite’s critical collision zone. This detection is based on thermal imaging which is integrated into lit road signage (diversion arrows, for instance) feeding a Foxstream-supplied VCA engine.
- Worksite personnel warning and signage system for on-site personnel.
