Mobileye has recently announced findings from a 2015 test of their collision avoidance technology carried out by the Chinese Research Institute of Highway Ministry of Transport.
During the tests, nearly 300 of the company’s aftermarket collision avoidance systems were fitted to buses and trucks and driven 15 million kilometers. Vehicles fitted with Mobileye systems showed the following:
21-35% reduction in the average “Risk Ratio”
39% reduction in the number of Headway Warnings per 100 kilometers
26% reduction in unintended lane departures per 100 kilometers
27% reduction in forward collision warnings per 100 kilometers
Mobileye In a statement, Mobileye Aftermarket pision vice president and general manager Elad Serfaty commented that they are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with China’s Research Institute of Highway Ministry of Transport to test their collision avoidance technology on commercial vehicles. He noted that governing and regulatory agencies are acknowledging the value of collision technology and are pushing it to become a standard feature in all vehicles. “The test results we shared verify the potentially life-saving benefits of Mobileye’s technology.”
In a statement, Research Institute of Highway Ministry of Transport, Yang Dongbo, noted that safety continues to be their main focus. In order to dramatically cut traffic accidents, joint efforts from the industry, government and enterprises are required. “We are pleased Mobileye, the global leader of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, is joining us to provide testing and recording results to significantly support the need for advanced safety technology in vehicles, especially commercial vehicles, to ensure safe driving.”
Meanwhile, according to Hengtong Logistics driver Li Huaibo, Mobileye’s collision avoidance system acts like a driver’s ‘third eye’ that constantly monitors the road. He explained that it detects potentially dangerous situations, and issues visual and audio alerts to help motorists like him prevent or mitigate a potential collision. “We are in the field of transporting hazardous chemicals; maintaining road safety at all times is vital.”
