Every year, 1.35 million people die in road accidents. 30 % of them happen due to weather related incidents.
At RDTS technologies, we are developing an active safety technology which could save those 100,000 lives each year.
Ever since the first automobile exists, the development of traction technology is limited to improving either the control and steer-ability of the vehicle or the braking efficiency. However, no existing technology is aiming to affect road traction.
Once the road surface is contaminated , even the very best of the current technology only ensures the maintenance of control over the car but cannot do anything to stop the car at a reduced distance.
RDTS active safety technology promises an innovative, out-of-the-box system that manipulates the road surface traction coefficient. RDTS aQ provides an increase in traction for the crucial few seconds at the start of braking, reducing the braking distance by up to 6 metres.
