A collision prevention assist helps you maintain distance to cars in front of you, but this system is not standard in all cars. With the AutoPi Telematics Unit this can be a standard. Mount an external sensor (proximity sensor) on the front of your car, and connect it to your AutoPi.
With built in audible alarms, the AutoPi is able to warn you if you don’t keep a safe distance to cars in front of you. Connect an external rain sensor and suddenly you can make your collision prevention assist adaptive and warn you about driving behavior in dangerous weather circumstances.
However, it doesn't only warn you about the vehicles in front of you. Collision avoidance system monitors all moving and stationery objects in front of you, such as pedestrians, animals and other objects. Scroll down to find out more about it.
How to do it?
You can also set this add-on from your AutoPi cloud management platform. Simply choose the feature (add-on) you want to have and click on install.
However, you will need to mount an external camera (proximity sensor) in front of your car. As easy as it sounds. In case you want to know more or are struggling with installation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
