Physical Description

born digital

abstract
The Reverse Safety Module is an after market addition to increase vehicle safety. The system increases safety by alerting the driver of potential hazards while backing up. At the heart of the design is a Motorola MiniDragon microprocessor that receives data from three ultrasonic sensors placed at the rear of the vehicle, an external temperature sensor, and a digital compass. When the vehicle is in reverse, the microprocessor will evaluate the distance of an object and display it on an LCD screen to alert the driver, as well as provide auditory feedback via a speaker. When the vehicle is not in reverse, the microprocessor will alternately display the outside temperature and vehicle direction. The system will be powered through the vehicle’s battery.
