Airbus and it’s partners is currently developing a cockpit function, which warns the pilots in case of collision risk on the runway. This is SURF-A or Surface Alerts. Currently tested in the simulator, SURF-A will be flight tested in 2019 and expected to come into the market by 2021.

Just bumped into this video on youtube. It seems like an extremely interesting and useful concept that can really contribute to aviation safety. I think it’s quite important to have a ground equivalent of TCAS and SURF-A seems to be working towards that! Really hope to see this in airlines soon!
