Team Firecracker from Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM) developed a road safety solution called the Change Lane Alert Assist (CLASs) where the prototype alerts other vehicle drivers against potential head-on collisions. CLASs is specifically designed for the implementation in heavy vehicles where it consists of LIDAR sensors and LED panel. While driving on single-lane roads, the LIDAR sensors detect any incoming vehicle in the opposite direction and provide the alert through its LED panel that is positioned at the rear end of the vehicle. The system will continuously update when it is safe for other vehicles to overtake.
