Drivers on the road have to keep their eyes on everything. In driving school you learn that every 3 to 5 seconds you need to glance down at your speedometer and check your mirrors. If you ever turn at an intersection without a stoplight or stop sign, you need to look both directions several times before driving. And whenever you’re on the road, you have to be constantly aware of everything around you from other drivers to road hazards to weather conditions to stray animals running past. How do you keep track of everything? When you can’t keep your eyes on everything, 3D cameras can be used for road safety.
How They Work
3D cameras enhance road safety by providing 3D imagery of the road around you. While normally you cannot keep your eyes on everything and even the safest drivers still have blind spots, a 3D imaging system gives you the spatial awareness you need to see everything going on around you so that you maintain control over your situation. It’s particularly helpful for drivers of large vehicles, buses, and trucks whose blind spots and limited views are greater. Additionally, it allows police and highway patrol to better determine safety hazards around them (including speeding vehicles and overloaded vehicles) so that they can ensure that the roads are safest for drivers.
Mimicking Your Eyesight
3D imaging technology is a great way to enhance safety on the road. Drivers who operate large vehicles, particularly buses and semi-trucks, can benefit from having this additional viewing aid to ensure that they do not miss hazards in their blind spots. 3D cameras also make self-driving vehicles safer and safer today. But additionally, for tow truck drivers, they provide great assistance. Spatial awareness as a tow truck driver is essential because every time you’re on the road, you may be transporting a different kind of vehicle, tow, or trailer. Towing technicians need to be prepared to manage that safely, and even though they are skilled drivers, every little bit helps to ensure that they and the other drivers on the road arrive safely to their destinations. It increases efficiency, speed, and safety altogether as drivers have their visual sphere enhanced by 3D camera systems.
Benefits of 3D Imaging Technology for Road Safety
No way of seeing is quite like our natural eyesight. We try to capture images on camera or film and it’s never the same as seeing it in person. That’s because our two eyes, set apart on our faces, see the world from two different angles and our brain interprets these angles to produce a 3D image. That way, we’re more spatially aware and can manage things like catching a ball or determining how close a dangerous road hazard is. 3D cameras in use for road safety mimic this using a system of cameras to do the same thing – shooting different angles so that a clear 3D picture of the scene is formed.
