Technology – Core Solutions and Features

The patented architecture developed by Sirab Technologies to solve challenges in automated transportation solutions focuses on below functional features. These functionalities are fully modular to implement.

  • Automated Lane Keeping System – Automated Lane Keeping goes beyond an assist system, where in an assist system, human driver is still responsible for keeping vehicle in the lane. Our lane keeping system is fully independent to human presence in driver’s seat and is more reliable than the painted lane markers or magnetic guidance systems.
  • Automated Docking – Automated docking allows vehicle to stop at designated location precisely. This safety-critical application is critical in application such as parking a bus in bus bay or stopping a truck for loading or unloading containers.
  • Automated Platooning – Automated Platooning allows for vehicles to move much closer and reducing the distance between the vehicles to less than 10m. This improves lane capacities, improves utilization of road infrastructure. Platooning also contributes to reducing aerodynamic drag on the vehicle and thereby improving fuel efficiencies of the vehicles.
  • Forward Collision Warning Systems – The Warning System detects key objects such as other vehicles, human and animals and provides appropriate warning alerts and support in avoiding an imminent collision.

Our Value Proposition

Sirab Technologies leverages radar techniques that are highly proven to demonstrate that these solutions could offer high accuracy and precision, low false alarm rates, and superior performances when compared with other approaches being pursued globally.

Technology Involved in Sirab's Primary Guidance System

  1. Structured Guidance system in dedicated lanes using on-board radars and high RCS reflectors optimized for radar detection and measurement accuracy.
  2. Technology to allow vehicles for structured high-speed merging and demerging without impacting the flow and speeds in the dedicated road lane.
  3. Allows Hard-Realtime, coordinated, synchronous control for platooning – to achieve desired safety standards that aids vehicle fuel savings, higher lane capacity, while improving traffic flow and reducing traffic jams.
  4. Safety Assurance – a deterministic, safer, realistic approach with limited need for operational maintenance
  5. Technology solutions that augment the comfort for the driver without concerns of loss of jobs – a key concern to the government and public utilities.
