SPECIAL REPORT


Pedestrian detection warnings can be viewed on a Thomas Built Buses in-cabin tablet, which was displayed at last summer’s STN EXPO Reno.


and multiple radar units on the 77GHz frequency band, that will be installed around Thomas buses. “These higher frequency radars, which are used for


diligent as bus drivers may be, sometimes they just can’t see a child around certain areas of the outside of the bus.” That’s the problem she said Thomas is hoping to solve.


“We hope to avoid unnecessary pedestrian accidents in the front, back and sides of our buses, even within blind spots. Working with the CUB Group and MITO Corporation, the technology is 90 percent there, and we are excited to show the industry this vital new safety feature,” she continued. As part of the BusWise Technologies, Kilgore elaborated


that the new pedestrian detection feature will be com- prised of LED ground lights on the cross-view mirrors,


autonomous vehicles and high-resolution meteorolog- ical observations,” Kilgore noted, allow for “more precise detection and measurement of a pedestrian or object within 10 feet of the front, back or side of the school bus. The entire traditional danger zone is visible. When a pedestrian is detected, the system will alert the driver on an in-cabin tablet, as well as through caution lights on the cross-view mirrors.” Seon’s next product release will focus on the right- hand side of the bus, where students are at risk of being struck by the bus or caught in the bus loading doors as the driver pulls away from the curb. That latter problem happened most recently on April 15, when a 6-year-old girl in Wasatch County, Utah, was dragged for about 10 to 15 feet before the bus stopped. Luckily for her, she suffered only minor injuries. But a 9-year-old Massachusetts student, Summer


Steele, wasn’t as lucky in October 2016. Her bus driver later pleaded guilty to negligent motor vehicle homicide
