The future belongs to buses equipped with sensors

TÜV Rheinland InterCert Kft. started testing the operation of the "Blind Spot Monitoring System" on Ikarus 120e electric buses.

The Greentech 2022 event will be held on May 26-27 at the ZalaZONE Automotive Test Track in Zalaegerszeg, where on Thursday Ikarus and TÜV Rheinland demonstrated the testing procedure of a blind spot monitoring system, the so-called "Blind Spot Monitoring System", on the Ikarus 120e electric bus.

The new European Union Regulation 2019/2144, which will enter into force in the summer of 2022, is the so-called According to the GSR (General Safety Regulation), newly approved vehicle types must include several systems that increase general safety and promote the protection of passengers and vulnerable road users. These systems include, among others, the Blind Spot Monitoring System, which draws the driver's attention to pedestrians and cyclists in the vehicle's blind spot, thus helping him in maneuvering.

The test modules and devices are available on the ZalaZONE test track, which enable the various devices named by the GSR to be tested with high safety, even by modeling a real traffic situation. During the test, for example, using ZalaZONE's robotic bicycle dummy moving platform, in the special urban test environment, Smart City, with the help of ZalaZONE's ADAS-trained test engineers, a blind spot monitor developed by TÜV Rheinland specifically for testing purposes was retrofitted into the Ikarus 120e bus. system was tested.

The purpose of these tests is, among other things, to prepare for the unique traffic challenges arising from the size of the buses, to improve the efficiency of safety-enhancing systems, and to facilitate the introduction of new systems into everyday traffic as soon as possible, promoting the creation of safer traffic.
