Avoiding collisions with vulnerable road users using new image technologyBy Mobileye
Organisation URL: http://www.mobileye.com
This driver-assistance technology empowers drivers to avoid and mitigate imminent collisions, protecting the most vulnerable and difficult-to-observe road users: cyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists.
It uses award-winning image-recognition software (that acts like a bionic eye) to reduce unnecessary warnings, which can desensitise drivers over time. Mobileye Shield + only emits audio and visual alerts to drivers if a collision is imminent with vulnerable road users, not inanimate objects.
The vehicular collision-avoidance technology has been developed and supported with the help of automobile partners including Tesla, GM, Audi and BMW.
