Home/Blog/What’s The Best Collision Avoidance System?
Mobileye provides the best collision avoidance systems that use advanced technology to help drivers avoid crashes and minimize the risk of injuries. Those driver assistance systems include forward collision warnings (FCW), lane departure warnings and pedestrian detection.
These systems save lives, reduce injuries and also spare fleets the enormous costs associated with crashes and collisions involving their drivers. The company designed Mobileye crash avoidance systems based on research showing that 90 percent of all crashes occur because of avoidable human errors.
Using the best collision avoidance systems, fleets minimize the risk of crashes and support drivers in better behind-the-wheel performance.
Mobileye systems address the issues that lead to fleet vehicle crashes. While the details of every crash vary, the causes typically come down to the following issues.
Distracted drivers. This is the No. 1 cause of crashes and collisions.
Inattention prior to an accident. About 80 percent of crashes involve drivers who were inattentive just three seconds before the collision occurred, meaning drivers have only two seconds to take corrective action.
Lane departures. This is an offshoot of distracted driving, as drivers not paying attention may veer outside their lane, striking another vehicle (or get hit by one that strays into their lane).
Human errors. While factors such as bad weather or road conditions frequently play a role in accidents, they often are coupled with human error. And in many cases, it’s simply human error alone.
Connected telematics systems address all these issues. In most cases, they provide an alert to a driver when detecting danger, such as when another vehicle enters the driver’s lane. These warnings give drivers that split second advantage they need to take corrective action and avoid catastrophe.
Popular Driver Assistance Systems
Fleet managers and drivers know what driver assistance systems best meet their needs. However, three types of systems rank among the most popular.
Forward Collision Warning Systems
Research shows that 40 percent of rear-end collisions happen without the driver coming from behind ever applying the brakes. They either did not see the crash coming or did not have the seconds needed to react. An FCW system addresses those issues, sounding an alert up to 2.7 seconds before a crash, giving drivers time to avoid or mitigate the severity of a crash.
Lane Departure Warning System
About 60 percent of road fatalities happen because a vehicle left its lane. A Mobileye lane departure warning system gives drivers an alert if they leave their lane when not using a blinker. The system detects when a vehicle’s tires have come too close to lane markings, or when they have crossed them. This driver assistance system also serves as a way to reduce instances of distracted driving.
Pedestrian Detection and Warning
Unfortunately, pedestrians are involved with 22 percent of traffic fatalities. A pedestrian detection and warning system alerts drivers when they get close to someone walking or cycling, providing them the seconds needed to either stop the vehicle or avoid the pedestrian.
All these systems take advantage of the statistically proven fact that just a few seconds of warning gives drivers the time they need to avoid a crash or collision with another vehicle or pedestrian.
These three driver assistance systems from Mobileye offer the best collision avoidance systems available on the market. For fleets, they can provide the crucial support drivers need to make the roads safer not only for them, but the drivers around them.
