Abellio London, which runs London buses for Transport for London, was determined to lower their fleet’s collision rate as part of Vision Zero, a project to reduce road deaths to zero by 2041. Working with Mobileye, Abellio launched a pilot project, in February 2018, installing collision avoidance systems on 66 buses traveling three different London routes. The trial was done in coordination with drivers and their union and was supported by Transport for London’s Bus Safety Innovation Fund.
Zero collisions is a big claim to make. Yet, this is the actual result which we have seen in a 60-vehicle pilot with Winslow Construction Group in Australia.
While dash cams can record a collision and help prove fault, collision avoidance systems are designed to prevent these collisions from happening in the first place. So, which is more beneficial?
The initial costs of a collision avoidance system may put some off, but this paper examines how quickly this initial investment can pay for itself in lower collision costs, less fuel consumption and other savings.
Juggling schedules, managing drivers, maintaining vehicles, pleasing customers… the to-do’s for a fleet manager seem endless. With over a decade of experience in the field, working with fleets, Mobileye understands these challenges – which of them are mere annoyances and which are truly monstrous headaches.
