A company that provides advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) is introducing a range of products to the UK market, which are designed to make drivers aware of potential dangers.
Mobileye’s products are based on a single ‘smart’ camera housed with Mobileye’s proprietary EyeQ™ chip and Mobileye’s algorithms – easily installed on the front windshield, inside the vehicle. The result is a set of driver safety and convenience applications, all running simultaneously on a single device.
Sophisticated computer vision/machine vision algorithms are able to ‘interpret’ a scene, being captured real-time, by a video camera in order to perform a specifically defined task. Some vehicle manufacturers are now adopting this technology into their vehicles.
Mobileye’s Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system alerts a driver if they begin to unintentionally veer into another lane. It also conditions the driver to use turn signals when changing lanes.
The Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system alerts a driver up to 2.7 seconds before a collision may occur, to allow a driver to react and avoid a potential collision.
The Headway Monitoring and Warning (HMW) system provides programmable visual and audio alerts and also serves to educate the driver to keep a safe following distance from the vehicle ahead.
The Pedestrian Collision Warning (PCW) system provides a visual and audio warning up to two seconds before a potential collision with a pedestrian or cyclist.
