Accelerometer-Based Brake Indication System (ABBIS)
The Accelerometer-Based Brake Indication System is a re-application and design for the delivery of vehicle deceleration through the centre high mounted stop lamp. The system is designed to visualise the speed in which a motor vehicle is slowing, in order to help reduce the risk of road traffic accidents and aid in the optimisation of traffic flow. Using a progressive lighting display, the system is primarily targeted at vehicle manufacturers, to be installed and built into the latest models as a new and innovative feature, but also marketed to an aftermarket audience for retrofitting.
