Mobileye aftermarket collision avoidance solution to be added to Proterra Catalyst electric buses
06 November 2015
Mobileye Aftermarket, a division of Mobileye N.V., a provider of vision and data analysis for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems and autonomous driving, announced that electric bus manufacturer Proterra Inc. will offer factory installation of the aftermarket collision avoidance solution in its 2016 models.
According to the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration, 93% of accidents are due to human error. An alert system such as Mobileye can give a distracted driver the opportunity to avoid a collision or mitigate its severity.
The Mobileye Aftermarket system warns drivers of potential incidents before they happen. This factory-installed option integrates the Mobileye Aftermarket system with the OEM LCD cluster in the dashboard, providing clear visibility for the driver, and maintaining the integrity of the dash. Tactile feedback will also be integrated into the OEM steering wheel.
In addition to the forward collision warning, the Mobileye Aftermarket system also offers pedestrian and cyclist detection, which is critical in urban environments, headway monitoring to avoid tailgating, lane departure warning to help avoid drifting, and speed limit indication.
