The number of personal, public transit, and last-mile delivery vehicles is increasing in tandem with the growth of urban populations. These cars coexist with pedestrians and bicycles, who are the most vulnerable road users, on increasingly congested streets.
Aside from roadway congestion, incidents are also caused by the blind areas of huge buses and heavy vehicles. Drivers must be able to maneuver fast and correctly while remaining aware of any adjacent movement.
On industrial storage facilities, workers on foot may potentially be at risk from forklifts. Forklift drivers may have more blind spots than regions of good vision when a full load totally blocks their view.
