Quantum Dimension Plans to Finish Development of World's First Sensor-Based Collision Avoidance Technology

Quantum Dimension, Inc. announced today that it is raising funds via a rewards/equity crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to finish the development of their revolutionary HawQ-i Sense & Avoid Life-Saving Sensor-Based Collision Avoidance Technology.

The company set out to raise $100,000 on Indiegogo to finish development and produce its first run of their latest invention that will change Collision Avoidance and provide a viable solution to reduce pedestrian, bicycle and motorcycle accidents and deaths.

HawQ-i Sense & Avoid is the World's first sensor-based technology that effectively alerts drivers to the presence of bicyclists, motorcyclists, and pedestrians on the road or within vicinity of the road.  HawQ-i utilizes a low-power transceiver which provides audio and visual alerts for the driver when a personal sensor is detected within range of the vehicle. "While many other Collision Avoidance solutions focus on utilizing video, HawQ-i Sense & Avoid utilizes existing fitness sensors found in many of today's fitness products and trackers and Smartphones," explains CEO Michael Enright.  "HawQ-i was invented to reduce accidents and deaths with utilizing low-cost and low-power wireless devices which alert a driver before an accident occurs, thus reducing accidents and fatalities."  While camera based solutions focus solely on visual detection, HawQ-i Sense & Avoid is designed to capture sensors data instead which can be provided quickly back to the driver.  Poor visibility that results from camera-based technologies is not an issue with HawQ-i.  In fact, HawQ-i Sense & Avoid is, in poor visibility or heavy traffic.

HawQ-i Sense & Avoid was designed to support a multitude of applications including commuting and personal use, business applications for warehouse, construction, or transportation use.
