In recent years, the frequent occurrence of urban public transportation safety accidents has become the focus of public attention. Public traffic safety is related to the life safety of the entire city, and its importance cannot be ignored. Relevant data shows that more than 600,000 people die in road collisions worldwide each year, and large vehicles are one of the main culprits that cause a large number of deaths. In these traffic accidents induced by large vehicles, the blind corner rolling caused by the driver’s blind spot has become an important inducement.
As a global pioneer in advanced driver assistance systems, Intel’s subsidiary Mobileye has launched a series of anti-collision solutions for large urban vehicles. In the actual application process, these products can effectively remind the driver of potential collision hazards that may occur in a short time. It can avoid collisions internally, and improve the level of urban road safety through data collection and feedback, and promote the construction of smart transportation and smart cities.
Mobileye’s leading collision avoidance technology can effectively improve the safety factor of urban roads
According to relevant data from the Boston Consulting Group, advanced driver assistance systems can avoid 30% of road safety accidents. Mobileye’s collision avoidance technology uses advanced machine learning and computer vision algorithms, just like the driver’s “third eye”, which can continuously monitor and analyze the driving environment and identify other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists. When necessary, sound and visual alarms will be issued in real time to help drivers avoid or mitigate collisions.
Mobileye Aegis Defense Monitoring System (Shield+) is an anti-collision solution for large urban vehicles. Through the artificial vision smart camera array installed around the vehicle, the product monitors the potential dangers of various blind spots in real time and prompts the driver to take action, so as to reserve sufficient reaction time for the driver to avoid accidents. Through the “Mobileye Shield+” municipal fleet managers can access online maps to Display accident “hot spots” on traffic routes based on alarm data, and use this valuable information to improve urban infrastructure. This collision avoidance warning system was the first to be applied in Washington State, USA. A comparative study showed that there were no collisions in the buses installed with MobileyeShield+, compared with 284 in the control group.
As a new generation of Mobileye products, based on EyeQ4®Mobileye 8 Connect™ can rely on the camera sensor and EyeQ located on the windshield®The processing system implements a series of functions such as front collision warning, pedestrian and bicycle warning, vehicle distance monitoring warning, lane departure warning and road sign recognition. In addition, the Mobileye 8 Connect™ series can also collect road conditions in real time for the generation of high-precision maps, and then prepare for automatic driving.
Recently, Abellio London*, one of London’s major public transport operators, conducted an important test of Mobileye’s security technology. Test results show that Mobileye’s anti-collision products have reduced avoidable collisions by 29% and reduced the damage caused by such collisions by 60%. That is to say, even if a collision occurs, its severity will be greatly reduced. Whether it is in the United States or the world, Mobileye’s anti-collision products can be easily assembled on vehicles through after-installation, thereby enhancing the safety of large urban vehicles.
Mobileye solutions help China’s smart transportation construction
China has become the world’s largest automobile market for nine consecutive years, with the world’s leading car ownership. At the same time, China’s road conditions are very complicated. Therefore, it is imperative to promote the construction of smart transportation. Based on its experience in autonomous driving technology in multiple markets around the world, Mobileye has brought advanced technologies and solutions to China, realized innovation with Chinese partners, and worked hand in hand to promote driving safety in China.
Hangzhou Xiaoju IOT Technology Co., Ltd. is a high-tech enterprise integrating hardware and software design, development and service provision of the Internet of Things, focusing on driving behavior analysis and road network safety services in the road transportation industry. In August of this year, Mobileye and Xiaoju IoT signed a memorandum of understanding, and the two sides cooperate in technology, data and “Powered by Mobileye”. In this cooperation, Xiaoju IoT uses the advanced solution of Mobileye 8 Connect™ to help Hangzhou accelerate the realization of autonomous driving road testing. As part of the smart city and mobile solution, it promotes the construction of smart transportation and smart city in Hangzhou. Support for the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.
In November this year, Mobileye signed a memorandum of understanding with Beitai Intelligent, a subsidiary of Beijing Beitai Electromechanical Equipment Industry and Trade Co., Ltd., to deploy Mobileye’s ADAS products in urban public transportation vehicles of Beijing’s public transportation system. Beijing Public Transport has more than 30,000 buses. The rich bus lines represent a huge road coverage area, which means that it has a huge amount of data. These rich road driving data can provide rich data references for future autonomous vehicles. As the chairman unit of the China Public Transport Alliance, Beijing Public Transport System can further expand the equipment of Mobileye’s ADAS products in the Chinese region, and expand to many cities in the National Public Transport Alliance through a pilot in the Beijing area. This will greatly improve the safety level of Beijing and the country’s public transportation system, accelerate the pace of smart transportation, and enhance the development of my country’s autonomous driving digital infrastructure.
As Li Hua, Operation Director of Beijing Beitai Electromechanical Equipment Industry and Trade Co., Ltd. said: “Beitai Intelligent has always been committed to providing intelligent driving solutions for commercial vehicles for smart city transportation. Through this cooperation with Mobileye, it will not only improve Beitai The competitiveness of intelligence in the industry, especially in the Beijing area, can take advantage of the technological advantages of both parties to jointly promote the popularization and application of ADAS technology and make urban traffic safer.”
Real-time road condition collection paves the way for autonomous driving
The data generated by the real-time conditions of the road is not simply collected and archived, but can provide feedback for automatic driving. Therefore, the collection of real-time road conditions is very important for the safety of automatic driving. Because of this, the cooperation between Mobileye and the two companies not only stops at equipment assembly, but also extends to the level of data collection and application. Large-scale urban vehicles equipped with Mobileye8 Connect™ can collect vehicle operation data and apply them to the generation of high-precision maps to pave the way for the next stage of autonomous driving.
Mobileye used the Mobileye 8 Connect™ product as a pilot on 300 city buses in New York and Berkeley. The data collected by these buses equipped with this product will be fed back to bus drivers for reference on the one hand; The high-precision maps generated after the collection of these big data will also be used as infrastructure to provide a strong guarantee for the next stage of autonomous driving.
As Elad Serfaty, senior vice president and general manager of the aftermarket department of Intel’s subsidiary Mobileye, said: “We now see that the collection of these big data not only builds a data infrastructure for future autonomous driving, but also provides current safe driving. This is an effective guarantee. Mobileye has established various levels of accurate maps to lay a solid foundation for the construction of accurate road infrastructure for autonomous vehicles in the future.”
Mobileye believes that autonomous driving is a gradual process, and ADAS is the basis for autonomous driving. By collecting operating information of vehicles on the road and generating high-precision maps to provide infrastructure support for autonomous driving, this smooth transition can not only pave the way for autonomous driving technology, but also leave room for the expansion of public acceptance. Today, Mobileye is using its leading ADAS solutions to join hands with China’s industry leaders to meet the challenges and make autonomous driving safety a reality on China’s roads.
