Simple vehicle warning systems as effective as more complex ones: University of Toronto study
Simple vehicle warning systems as effective as more complex ones: University of Toronto study
There are over 10,000 collisions between vehicles and wildlife in Ontario every year. Most are not fatal for those in the vehicle, but the costs associated with such a collision in Canada total about $800 million annually. While automotive safety systems already warn drivers of some hazards - such as a vehicle in their blind spot - identifying unexpected hazards, including potential collisions with wildlife, in dynamic road situations is a more complicated task.
