Table 6 Barriers regarding technical performance of Blind Spot Detection (BSD) together with the classification on preliminary estimate on the ease to overcome the barrier

From: Recommendations for actions concerning supporting ITS developments for VRUs

Potential barriers Preliminary estimate on the ease to overcome the barrier
Easy Medium Challenging
Systems using camera may not work in poor lighting and adverse weather conditions   X  
Blind spot detection for Powered Two Wheelers has other requirements (other blind spots) than for non-motorised VRUs    X
Currently there are different versions of the system on the market, some of them requiring equipment on bicycles X   
Detection rate for pedestrians (and cyclists) is still quite low, at 77%. This needs to increase.   X
