Introducing the Mobileye technology to encourage safer driving and an investment towards safer roads
Leading bus operator ComfortDelGro Corporation Australia (CDC) is proud to be the largest bus company in Australia to adopt Mobileye’s aftermarket solution. The vision-based collision avoidance system helps drivers to keep an “extra eye” on the road by alerting them to potential accidents and cutting reaction times.
Mobileye consists of a compact monocular high definition camera mounted on the windshield, which constantly monitors the road in front of the vehicle. This information is then displayed on a small dashboard device. In addition to visual alerts, the unit sounds an audio warning to assist the driver in preventing or mitigating a collision. The alerts monitor four main areas: safe following distance; forward collision alert; lane departure without signalling; and pedestrian and cyclist collision warning.
Mobileye technology helps drivers improve their driving habits and maximise concentration. Alerting them to various hazards before they occur encourages better driving habits, and with ongoing use, changes behaviour to produce a safer, lower-risk driving environment. Safer driving and a greater safety awareness help to protect the lives and safety of drivers and passengers as well as other road users, including pedestrian and cyclists.
The implementation of Mobileye technology will take place simultaneously in Victoria and NSW.
