  • Enhanced Sensory Perception: Utilizing cameras and radars, PlusProtect can detect objects up to approximately 650 feet away, providing a comprehensive situational awareness that significantly outperforms traditional systems.
  • Flexible and Adaptable Technology: Designed to be versatile, PlusProtect works across different sensor setups and vehicle designs, including variations for U.S. and European markets.
  • Global Implementation: Already in use across the U.S., Europe, and Australia, PlusProtect is proving its effectiveness and reliability in diverse driving environments.

Detailed Overview of PlusProtect

PlusProtect is not merely an enhancement of existing safety systems; it represents a significant leap in the capabilities of vehicular safety technologies. By integrating self-calibrating sensors and allowing for over-the-air updates, the system ensures that vehicles are always equipped with the latest safety features. This technology is crucial, especially as regulatory bodies like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) push towards mandatory AEB systems by September 2029 for all passenger vehicles and light trucks.

According to Shawn Kerrigan, COO and Co-Founder of Plus, “While improved road safety underlies all of our solutions, we created PlusProtect specifically to enable Tier 1s and OEMs to build market-leading next-generation safety systems.” He further emphasized the role of PlusProtect in fostering higher levels of vehicle automation.

Conclusion and Implications for Road Safety

Kerrigan also highlighted that while PlusProtect dramatically enhances safety, it does not replace the need for skilled and alert drivers. The ultimate responsibility for safe vehicle operation remains with the driver, who must be aware of the technology’s capabilities and limitations.
