Collision Avoidance System CAS-M3

The Collision Avoidance System-Motorsport 3 (CAS-M3) features a high-performance Bosch Motorsport Display Unit for fast video processing (see right in the picture above), and a Rear Module, composed from a Bosch mid-range radar sensor for a wider field of view in close-up range and a fast response high definition camera (see left in the picture above).

The CAS-M3 system provides real time visualization and warns the driver about approaching or overtaking cars via intuitive marking of the cars on the display. It helps prevent the most common collisions and allows drivers to focus on the race. With a momentary glance, the driver can tell how many cars are following and their classification depending on distance and relative speed. The radar tracks up to 40 objects and marks up to 4 objects on the display. In addition, bright flashing LEDs alert the driver when any car attempts a passing maneuver. All of these features work at night or in the rain when visibility is typically poor. Furthermore, the real time gap of a marked object is measured and can be provided over CAN or Ethernet.

The CAS-M3 system is fully integrated in the Bosch Motorsport Tool environment and can be configured with RaceCon.

Installation Notes

The rear unit must be mounted 90° to the vehicles vertical and horizontal axis and within ± 200 mm of the vehicle lateral centerline.

Mounting distance of radar over ground: 300 to 1,000 mm

An open mounting position for the radar sensor is recommended.

Consider the maximum vibration limits for the mounting position of the rear module. The system is approved referred to vibration profile 1, see www.bosch-motorsport.com.

Check the radar sensor for travel inside the radar bracket. In this case, remove the radar sensor and check the locking pins at both sides of the sensor. Due to vibrations, these pins can be deformed. Exceeding travel of the sensor can damage the electric contacts.

The system needs yaw rate and vehicle speed information.

Cat 6 A standard for Gigabit Ethernet.

This product may contain open source software. Information about license terms and other obligations is given in the manual.

For the private CAN network between display and rear module, no termination resistor is needed in the wiring harness. There are pre-installed termination resistors in the radar sensor and the display.

Safety Notes

It is not permitted to use the system as mirror replacement.
