DSSS [Driving Safety Support Systems]

The Driving Safety Support Systems assist drivers to drive safely.

Various sensors are used to detect cars, motorcycles, and pedestrians that are not in the driver's sight. Based on this information, the DSSS alert drivers via message display boards or in-vehicle units.
