Mobileye Collision Avoidance system

Entegra Coach will be offering the Mobileye Collision Avoidance C2-270 System in select coaches, according to a press release.

The Mobileye C2-270 system, designed to prevent collisions, includes a smart camera located on the front windshield inside the vehicle. It utilizes Mobileye’s vehicle, lane and pedestrian detection technologies to measure the distance to vehicles, lane markings and pedestrians, providing the driver with life-saving alerts.

The system calculates the “time to collision” based on the distance and the relative speed between the two vehicles. Studies showed that 1.5 seconds of early warning can prevent almost 90% of all rear-end collisions. The forward collision warning in the Mobileye C2-270 alerts the driver up to 2.7 seconds before a collision allowing enough time to react.

The lane departure warning alerts the driver with visual and audio warnings when deviating unintentionally from the driving lane, a situation that may end in a run-off-road crash or rollover. The Mobileye C2-270 measures the distance from the vehicle’s wheels to the lane markings on both sides and issues a directional alert. Studies conducted on fleet vehicles have shown a 65% decrease in all lane-departure related crashes using the lane departure warning.

“We’re always looking for innovative products to lead in technology and safety,” said Tadd Jenkins, Entegra Coach national sales manager. “The Mobileye Collision Avoidance System will give our customers greater confidence on the road.”

Mobileye Avoidance Collision Systems are distributed by RiverPark Inc. of Elkhart, Ind. For additional information visit www.mobileye.com.

    Being in the same business since 1996 and involved in this technology for these many years, I have a real appreciation for the vision it took for this type of vehicle technology to finally be embraced and ultimately be commercialized in both the private and commercial sectors. It’s all good…
