Next generation of active safety systems - systems that can help avoid collisions also with animals - is being under development. A development team from Volvo Car Corporation spent an evening at a safari park digitally logging film sequences of animals and their various behavioural patterns. On this particular evening the focus was on moose, red deer and fallow deer. By driving very slowly along a trail where fodder had been laid out to attract the animals, a lot of data was recorded and this will later be used to evaluate and develop the sensor system. The system consists of two parts – a radar sensor and an infra-red camera that can register the traffic situation when driving in the dark. The test vehicle was a Volvo V70.
