London bus operator, Abellio, has launched a major trial of safety technology from Intel company, Mobileye. The trial is supported by Transport for London (TfL) through a grant from its Bus Safety Innovation Fund.

Reduction in collisions

The trial is focused on reducing bus collisions with cyclists, motorcycles, pedestrians and other road users, and findings to date show the technology has reduced avoidable collisions by 29 per cent (those which are in the driver’s control to prevent) and reduced injuries from such collisions by 60 per cent.

The aftermarket collision avoidance technology is engineered by the same team that are developing advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicle technology. The solution can be retrofitted to almost any vehicle already on the road.
