The NRMA (National Roads and Motorists’ Association) has joined hands with Telstra to retrofit 300 of its roadside support vans with Mobileye’s AI driver-support system all over the New South Wales.
“These vans can invest almost 4,000 Hours each year on the road. That is almost 250,000 Minutes where anything can take place, from dangerous near misses through to major collisions. But in a little below 2 Hours of installation for every vehicle, we are operating to make those hours invest assisting others secure than before,” Gerhard Loots, executive at Telstra Global IoT Solutions, claimed to the media.
As per Loots, the Intel-powered firm Mobileye has developed the Mobileye 6 series to offer drivers a “3rd-eye on the streets” and assist prevents driving accidents. It sports a sole camera with a dashboard alert unit and built-in sensor that offers drivers audible and visual alerts about possible accidents.
Loots claimed that via the system, drivers get almost 2 Seconds of audible alerts prior to a possible accident, and almost 2.7 Seconds in urban areas and on highways before a forward accident with other motorcycles, vehicles, pedestrians, or bicycles. The system also offers lane departure warnings and speed alert. He claimed that considering the easiness of the system, patrol drivers of NRMA have had to go via less training to employ it.
“Patrol drivers at NRMA are briefed on the new technology, and they are back on the road. No enhanced operation or training needed: just a potentially life-saving, small update to their priceless mobile office,” he claimed. The systems have now been in position for 6–8 Weeks, with Loots claiming that the drivers have “reported that they feel secure already.” NRMA patrols will offer current feedback to Mobileye as further launches of the system carries on, Loots claimed.
