Recently, Johnson & Johnson installed an advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) known as ‘Mobileye’ in 65 of their cars. The six month trial was designed to see whether the new technology would improve fuel efficiency and safety across the company’s fleet. After just three months, an 11% fuel use improvement and a 14% improvement in vehicle safety was witnessed.
The system helps drivers avoid being involved in an accident and also provides alerts about impending collisions and warnings when tailgating. It also gathers driving habit information which is used to rate driver safety and provide driving improvements.
Mobileye also provides drivers with real-time speed limits and warnings when speeding, which improves fuel efficiency and cuts the risk of receiving a speeding ticket. The company used a cross-section of its staff across the UK to take part in the trial, from those who regularly drive long distances to those commuting short distances to work each day.
Mobileye front-facing cameras are usually installed behind the car’s rear view mirror by trained technicians, whilst a device mounted on the dashboard provides information and alerts for the driver. By 2016, it’s estimated the global ADAs market will be worth around £80 billion.
Injured in a car accident?
Sometimes, accidents are nobody’s fault, but if you have been injured in an accident where the other driver was to blame, you could claim compensation. An in-car camera can help to provide evidence in support of your claim, whilst an ADAS can help you to drive more safely and prevent accidents from occurring. Here are a few examples of the types of injuries which could occur:
- Head injuries
- Cuts and bruises
- Broken bones
Whether you have suffered minor whiplash or been forced to take time off work due to more serious injuries, a personal injury lawyer can help you to claim the compensation you deserve.
