Trams provide a convenient public transportation medium to inner-city and inter-city travel. Although convenient, trams typically run in crowded urban areas where safety of both passengers and pedestrians is of utmost importance. In a tramway network of a city, NEXCOM's VMC 3011 vehicle mount computer has been installed in trams to give drivers increased visibility in vehicle blind spots, providing commuters and citizens a safe and sound transit service.
Installed on the driver's dashboard, NEXCOM's VMC 3011 displays live video content from IP cameras installed in critical blind spots outside the tram on the left and right. With the blind spots removed, drivers can now see clearly any approaching pedestrian or vehicle in all directions from the front and sides, and slow down or stop completely to avoid accidents. By detecting for imminent collisions, accidents have been reduced, improving transport safety for citizens of the city.
