Video transcript available: www.csiro.au/Vimeo/BHP-awards/Lawrence-Pawar/video-transcript Pedestrian Auto Alert Safety System (PAASS) Concerned reading in the media about pedestrians being accidently driven over by reversing cars led Lawrence to invent the Pedestrian Auto Alert Safety System (PAASS). PAASS uses two separate inventions and uses three safety levels based on artificial intelligence. The Pedestrian Alert System (PAS) detects the presence of a pedestrian and alerts them to the reversing car whilst simultaneously the Driver Alert System (DAS) alerts the driver inside the car of the pedestrian behind. If these two levels of safety fail to protect the pedestrian, the Reverse Automatic Braking System (RABS) is activated which automatically stops the car.
