Mobileye Shield+ Technology Awarded “Best New Product” at BusCon!
Queens, NY September 29th 2015 - Rosco, an automotive vision safety leader in backup camera systems, interior/exterior mirrors, and automotive camera recording, was awarded “Best New Product” for their Vision Quest Bus equipped with Mobileye Shield+ Technology at BusCon 2015 in Indianapolis, Indiana this week.
One of the largest conventions in North America, each year, BusCon attracts representatives from public transit, paratransit, private charters, tour, corporate, intercity, senior and university transit industries.
The Mobileye Shield+ system is the latest technological advancement for preventing collisions between vehicles and vulnerable road users (VRU’s) including pedestrians and cyclists. The dynamic bus operating conditions on congested urban streets demand the highest level of visibility when operating the bus and especially when approaching VRU’s in complex bus turning patterns. Pedestrians and cyclists often are not seen by the driver due to the large blind spots when the bus is making turns on tight, busy city streets.
The Mobileye Shield+ Technology is a multi-vision-sensor solution that provides drivers with alerts when VRU’s are in blind spots or danger zones of the bus. The unique side-sensing feature alerts the operator to pedestrians and cyclists in the bus’ path, before an incident occurs, giving the operator time to react and mitigate the collision.
Mobileye Shield+ Technology was also featured on Eyewitness news! The pedestrian technology is currently being tested on MTA buses in New York City. View the full clip here.
