According to a report published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in conjunction with the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI), 80% of collisions and 65% of near-collisions involve some form of driver distraction in the last three seconds before the accident.
Just a moment of inattention can make all the difference. But, what if we could grab drivers’ attention at these critical times, buying back that precious moment before a collision occurs?
That is what Mobileye’s collision avoidance system does. The retrofit solution helps refocus drivers’ attention in real-time – when they are too close to the vehicle in front of them, are unintentionally drifting into another lane, or when potential dangers such as cyclist or pedestrians move into their path.
Over the last two decades, experience has shown that ADAS, including such features as forward collision warning, lane departure warning and pedestrian collision warning, work. Studies show that 30% of all collisions could be avoided by wider adoption of collision avoidance systems like these.
An added benefit is that with Mobileye, aggregated data can be easily exported to a third-party telematics or fleet management systems, providing greater fleet visibility and insights into driver behaviour.
Winslow Construction Group said that with “Mobileye’s retrofit system could achieve the same level of safety for their fleet as purchasing new vehicles, but for a fraction of the cost” following the implementation of Mobileye systems on their fleet”.
