The MODS is a simple, cost-efficient, and effective system for obstacle detection and prevention, as well as a following distance indicator.The Design
The MODS system can detect obstacles up to 1700 meters under perfect conditions, about half that under bad conditions.
A simple readout gives the driver information about approaching obstacles
This allows the driver to make the decision in real time about avoidance of an oncoming obstacleFeatures continued
The MODS system is high tech, but it also allows for simple, direct, and decisive communication of the data and information it gathers to the userUser interface
With a second passenger in the car the Ladar can be used to create a complete 3D ground mappingVarying degrees of complexity
A supersonic, adjustable frequency transmitter is attached to the back of each humvee, and a receiver is attached to the front
This system produces a simple distance readout to help drivers maintain following distanceConvoy spacing maintenance
Laser bounces off of ground and comes back to receiver
System computes distance
Displays information on readout screen
Any spike in distance, due to hole in ground, will result in an alert on the readout
Once alert detected, a program will continually show the distance to the obstacleUniversal laser sensor
