Vehicles benefit from ADAS
If your business has a fleet of vehicles on the road, you will want to know all about Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) for collision prevention and mitigation. It offers your business a range of benefits, the most obvious one being safety but there are plenty of other bonuses too.
ADAS is technology that is no stranger to vehicles on the road – indeed, there are more than 25 million vehicles globally who use ADAS. Its role is to reduce, lower and mitigate vehicle collisions, resulting in injuries and fatalities.
ADAS can be fitted to nearly any vehicle. What are the reasons to consider it? Let’s look at some statistics: nearly 95 per cent of car accidents are due to driver error and about 80 per cent of crashes occur because the driver is not focused just three seconds before the prang.
ADAS technology reduces the risk of a collision by warning the driver with visual and audio alerts in real- time, providing the critical seconds needed to avoid or mitigate a collision.
The ADAS technology preferred and supported by Azentro is Mobileye. The vision sensor scans the driving scene ahead and Mobileye’s proprietary algorithms examine it and detect other vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists, lane markings, and speed limit signs that may be in the vehicle’s path, all in real-time. It’s like having another set of eyes in the vehicle with you.
And installing ADAS is good for drivers’ too. When the system is in the vehicle, drivers become more aware of their behaviour and as a result incorporate safer driving habits.
ADAS can easily be added to many major fleet management systems, allowing for better data on driver behaviour and it can provide worthwhile insights about your operational trends.
If you are interested or looking for a system that is going to ensure the safety of your drivers and vehicles, ADAS is the way to go. It provides an extra layer of security and it can also reduce your ongoing operational costs including insurance and vehicle repairs.
