Esri, a company that is a market leader in the field of spatial analytics has announced that it will be teaming up with Mobileye. Mobileye makes advanced driver-assistance systems software, and with the advent of autonomous vehicles, this collaboration will help Mobileye to integrate Esri mapping, analysis, and visualization with its Shield+ product. Cities will be able to use Shield+ to visualize and analyze real-time location data so that public transport is safer and moves more smoothly.
Mobileye’s Shield+ will stream the road safety data that is obtained through vehicles belonging to the city fleets into Esri’s ArcGIS platform. This real-time information including details such as pedestrian and cyclist detection in blindspots can be seen easily on the Mobileye Smart Mobility Dashboard. Shield+ alerts will then be updated to the dashboard in real time, so that analysts have a city-wide perspective of the safety of cyclists and pedestrians. Users of the system like drivers of public transport buses can get alerts about imminent hazards just seconds before a potential collision, and thus be more alert about the routes they have to take.
Commenting on the collaboration, Jim Young, Esri head of business development said that Esri was excited to collaborate with Mobileye for a service that would make communities safer. He added, “Making spatial data available to governments to improve safety and overall quality of life is an important step.”
As an outcome of this collaboration with Esri, Mobileye will give municipalities with which it signs new contracts the option of adding the analytics-based capability powered by Esri’s ArcGIS software.
Nisso Moyal, director of business development and big data at Mobileye said that through this collaboration with Esri, Mobileye will now be able to offer cities and mobility providers a game-changing product.
He concluded by saying that enabling direct uploading of geospatial events from Shield+ fitted to municipal buses and the like to the Mobileye Smart Mobility Dashboard will help cities to anticipate and prevent collisions, while optimizing the management of their assets.
