Collision Avoidance Installed in 4,500 N.Y. Ridesharing Cars
Feb. 17, 2017—Mobileye installed collision avoidance technology across 4,500 ridesharing vehicles in New York City.
Together with Atlas Financial Holdings, Mobileye has equipped thousands of New York City-based rideshare vehicles, such as those available through popular apps including Uber and Lyft, with advanced collision avoidance systems that focus on accident prevention.
The for-hire vehicles in New York City will feature Mobileye technologies enabled by a high resolution vision sensor that analyzes potential dangerous scenarios in real time, alerting drivers to impending collisions and giving them enough time to react.
"As the popularity of ridesharing continues to grow in cities across the country, it is imperative that these vehicles take advantage of new technologies designed to enhance the safety of drivers and passengers," said Moran David, director of business development at Mobileye. "Mobileye's system will provide vehicle owners and drivers peace of mind knowing that the most advanced technologies are in place to provide an extra layer of safety and protection to drivers and their passengers. We look forward to working closely with our partners to prevent collisions across the city, while improving the driving behavior of operators."
The Mobileye system integrates Pointer Telocation, a leading developer and operator of Fleet and Mobile Resource Management solutions, allowing vehicle and fleet owners the opportunity to review the driving behaviors of its operators.
