mobileye-630-travelcontrol-device

In a modern world full of distractions, drivers tend to lose concentration on the road quickly. Especially by distractions as conspicuous as our own cell phone. 

Who hasn't checked their cell phone at a red light? Some even do it while driving, which is extremely dangerous, since according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic SafetyIn the case of a driver who is not using a mobile device, a driver remains distracted for 27 seconds after the use of a mobile device, putting his or her life at risk, as well as the lives of passengers, pedestrians and other drivers on the road. 

Especially for drivers of heavy vehicles, as they are 23 times more likely to crash when texting, according to the Virginia Tech Transportation Instituteas well as being 5.9 times more likely to crash when dialing a cell phone.

But not only does the phone count as a dangerous distraction, but using the radio, eating, drinking, smoking or looking at navigation applications while driving are habits that put the driver's life and everyone else's at risk. 

For this reason, Mobileye is the solution to the concerns of these characteristics for managers or heads of vehicle fleets. The technology of this third eyeThe system, which is equipped with an audible, vibrating and/or visual alarm, alerts the driver to any dangerous situation that could put the driver and the goods being transported at risk, as well as preventing any delivery problems. 

Among the alerts generated by Mobileye are

  • Head-on collision warning (FCW)

    It detects a vehicle head-on and calculates its relative speed based on its "time before collision".

  • Runway Departure Warning System (LDW)

    It warns the driver with sound and visual warnings when leaving the track and helps the driver get back on track.

  • Traffic Signal Recording (TSR/TLR)

    The system recognizes traffic signals and traffic lights to help the driver make better decisions.

  • Front Vehicle Alarm (FCDA)

    Warns the driver with a warning tone if a vehicle moves after the traffic light changes.

  • Pedestrian Detection Warning (PCW)

    It detects when pedestrians cross in the driver's view and shows their location.

  • Proximity Warning (HMW)

    Proximity sensor between vehicles and/or other obstacles 

Also, we recommend that you ask your drivers to remove any distractions, put away mobile devices while driving, and if they need to be able to stop for food and hydration, so that they do not do so while driving. 

Teach your drivers that safe driving is the best way to work. No one wants them to be part of a statistic about fatal accidents. Protect them with our Mobileye.
