Altech Netstar and Mobileye drive road safety
Altech Netstar and Mobileye, an Intel Company, have joined forces in South Africa to include the integration of Mobileye’s vision-based Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS) into Altech’s digital product portfolio.
Mobileye is a global leader in the development of vision-based technology for ADAS and autonomous driving systems and the collaboration is in partnership with Road Eye Systems, an official Mobileye distributor in South Africa.
“The addition of this leading-edge ADAS technology to our fleet telematics portfolio offers our customers advanced driver-safety management by providing drivers with in-vehicle collision-prevention and mitigation alerts.
“Driver behaviour and trend analysis is available online through our telematics platform,” says Harry Louw, MD of Altech Netstar.
Mobileye’s vision-based collision-avoidance system assists drivers by alerting them prior to a potential accident or danger on the road. These visual and audio alerts allow the driver enough time to react and avoid or mitigate the potential collision.
The system monitors four main areas: forward collision alert, safe following distance, unintended lane departure, as well as pedestrian and cyclist collision warning.
“Mobileye is delighted that our world-class collision-avoidance system will be offered as part of Altech Netstar’s portfolio of cutting-edge technologies,” says Jason Bloom, Mobileye regional manager
“By offering Mobileye’s ADAS technology, Altech Netstar is contributing to increased vehicle safety and the safety of South African road users. Together, we aim to combat the high fatality rate on South African roads.”
