Are your councilís vehicles as safe as they could be?*
The safety technologies found in new vehicles have proven to reduce the risk of collisions.
What can councils do if current fleet vehicles don’t meet modern standards?
Around 90 percent of new passenger cars include advanced safety and collision mitigation features, known as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
In the truck and light commercial segment however, only a select few models
The good news though is that ADAS can be retrofitted to any vehicle.
Mobileye, an Intel Company, are global leaders in ADAS and autonomous driving, supplying more than 27 motor vehicle manufacturers (OEM), including brands like Volvo, BMW, Audi, VW, GM, Ford, Mazda and more.
Mobileye’s retrofit solution, which can easily be installed into any vehicle, allows councils the opportunity to upgrade existing fleet vehicles or add ADAS when procuring new vehicles that don’t include ADAS from factory.
Features include: Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Pedestrian Collision Warning, Headway Monitoring and Tailgating Reminder plus Speed Sign Recognition and Overspeed Alert.
Employing cutting- edge Artificial Vision technology, Mobileye constantly scans the area in front of the vehicle, detecting all types of vehicles, motorcycles, pedestrians, cyclists, lane lines, road edges and speed signs.
Mobileye’s intelligent algorithms can predict potential collisions and alert the driver, with visual and audible alerts, up to 2.7 seconds before impact – allowing more time for the driver to react and take action.
Furthermore, constant positive feedback, like the tailgating reminder, changes driver behaviour - drivers begin to anticipate the beep and naturally maintain a better following distance.
Councils can reduce risk, prevent collisions, save lives and costs by equipping fleet vehicles with Mobileye.
Mobileye is available directly from Australian Distributor, FleetSafe, or from your local truck or light commercial dealership.
