RealTrac Collision Awareness System

RealTrac Collision Awareness System (CAS)


The RealTrac Collision Awareness System product is designed in order to provide: dangerous proximity detection; issuing warning to the objects detected in such proximity; collision awareness between vehicles or between vehicles and personnel.

The product has two monitor directions:

  1. Vehicle-vehicle proximity detection control
  2. Vehicle-personnel proximity detection control


“Collision Awareness Systems from RealTrac are in accordance with the upcoming ISO Standard 21815 and RealTrac is proud to actively participate in the respective ISO standards groups. This provides our customers a unique combination of cutting-edge technology with global standardization”

Dr. Peter Stegmaier, Board Member of RealTrac


Monitor directions

Vehicle-vehicle (V2V)

  • Registers dangerous proximity 
  • Issues a warning about a potential collision
  • Decreases downtimes caused by vehicle collisions
  • Ensures traffic safety in case of poor visibility

Vehicle-personnel (V2P)

  • Detects a person on a vehicle’s path of motion
  • Issues a warning about a person located in hazardous area
  • Decreases industrial injuries caused by collisions between vehicles and personnel


Dangerous proximity control zones

After RealTrac Collision Awareness System (CAS) equipment is installed on a vehicle or machinery ­ -  3 control zones are shaped around it.


The RealTrac Collision awareness – Attention Zone

Attention Zone

Issues a warning to personnel about vehicles, equipment, etc. detected in close range.

Detects potential dangerous proximity and draws personnel’s attention to proximity to the other object.

  • Light indication
    • Dashboard indication in a vehicle
    • LED signal on a personal tag
  • Sound indication
    • Repeating audio signal inside the cab
  • Vibration
    • Discrete vibration on a tag

The RealTrac Collision awareness – Danger Zone

Danger Zone

Provides dangerous proximity detection and attracts personnel’s attention, can slow down the speed of vehicles or equipment.

Issues warnings about possible accidents and draws personnel’s attention to a dangerous proximity to the other object.

  • Light indication
    • Dashboard indication in a vehicle
    • LED signal on a personal tag
    • Strobe light on the outside of a vehicle
    • Blinking yellow marker lights on a vehicle
  • Sound indication
    • Frequently repeating audio signal inside a vehicle
  • Vibration
    • Repeating vibration on a tag

The RealTrac Collision Awareness – Emergency Zone

Emergency Zone

Generates alarm signal in case of emergency or extreme dangerous proximity, can stop vehicles or equipment.

  • Light indication
    • Emergency strobe lights on a vehicle
    • LED light on a personal tag
  • Sound indication
    • Car siren
    • Car horn
  • Vibration
    • Continuous vibration on a personal tag

It helps to create three necessary zones around a vehicle or any other piece of equipment that will issue a warning about dangerous proximity between vehicles and personnel.

The zones can have different shapes and be tailored to certain type of vehicles and the equipment installed.


The Key Feature of RealTrac Collision Awareness (CAS)


The 3 zone vehicle operator display for continuous visual assessment of the environment. This way it enables to detect any case of dangerous proximity with another object and take actions to prevent a collision or run over.

The display shows the system health and the buttons enable sending emergency notifications or confirming any action.

On the right you can see how an object enters and leaves different control zones 


«Alert» zone

PROD CAS 1000 VOD «Alert» zone

The other object is to the right of the vehicle along the path in «Alert» Zone.

«Danger» zone

PROD CAS 1000 VOD «Danger» zone

The object has approached the vehicle at a dangerous proximity and entered «Danger» zone. The sound notification is activated and the sign «Alert» on the display starts to blink rarely.

«Emergency» zone

PROD CAS 1000 VOD «Emergency» zone

The object has come close to the vehicle at a dangerous distance, has entered the «Emergency» zone and a collision is possible. A permanent audible alarm is activated and the «Emergency» sign flashes frequently on the display.


Additionally, RealTrac Collision awareness System can be connected to the cap lamps, flashing beacons and equipment for sound notification. This way the system will notify the machinery and personnel about entering «Alert», «Danger» and «Emergency» zones.

Equipment for vehicles


PROD CAS 1500 VODPROD CAS 1500 VOD

Vehicle Operator Display (VOD) - is installed in the driver's cabin and serves for visual assessment of the environment around the vehicle, receiving alerts about the dangerous proximity and monitoring the system state.

PROD CAS 1500 VCUPROD CAS 1500 VCU

Vehicle Control Unit (VCU) - is installed on a vehicle and calculates the distance from the tag to the VBUs and the tag’s direction of movement. The VCU determines in which of the control zones the tag is located and, depending on this, displays the information about objects in different zones to the driver and activates light and graphic or audible alerts.

PROD CAS 1500 VBUPROD CAS 1500 VBU

Vehicle Beacon Unit (VBU) – is utilized to detect other VBUs or personal tags (trackers). The number of VBUs installed on a vehicle depends on the size and configuration of the vehicle (usually 4-8 units).
