Transport for London (TfL) are to fit four London buses with detection software that alerts drivers when motorcyclists (plus cyclists and pedestrians) are moving close to their vehicles.
TfL will run a six-week trial from 15th August on route 25 and route 73. The rival systems are CycleEye from Fusion Processing Limited and Cycle Safety Shield from Safety Shield Systems Limited.
CycleEye uses both radar and optical technology to detect cyclists in close proximity to vehicles with the system giving audio alerts to their presence to the bus driver. Cycle Safety Shield detects pedestrians, cyclists or motorcyclists in close proximity to vehicles, giving a visual warning and then an audio alert to the driver.
Findings will be published later this year.
