Altech Netstar a subsidiary of Allied Electronics Corporation (Altron), announced today that it is extending its digital product portfolio to include the integration of Mobileye’s vision-based Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS).
Mobileye, an intel company, is the global leader in the development of vision-based technology for ADAS and autonomous driving systems. This collaboration is also in partnership with Road Eye Systems, an official Mobileye distributor in South Africa.
Altech Netstar offers a wide range of digitally connected fleet and telematics solutions into Africa and Australia, while Mobileye’s technology is used in over 20 million vehicles world-wide, including leading OEMs such as BMW, Audi, Renault, Nissan, General Motors and others.
“The addition of this leading edge ADAS technology to our fleet telematics ecosystem offers our customers advanced driver safety management, by providing drivers with in-vehicle collision prevention and mitigation alerts. Driver behaviour and trend analysis is available online through our telematics platform in support of continual safety improvement programs,” said Harry Louw, Managing Director of Altech Netstar.
According tot he two companies, the collaboration was a perfect fit because of Mobileye’s vision-based collision avoidance system that assists drivers by alerting them prior to a potential accident or danger on the road.
These visual and audio alerts allow the driver enough time to react and avoid or mitigate the potential collision altogether.
“Mobileye is delighted that our world-class collision avoidance system will be offered as part of Altech Netstar’s portfolio of cutting-edge technologies. By offering Mobileye’s ADAS technology, it is clear that Altech Netstar believes in increased vehicle safety and in the safety of South African road users. Together, we aim to combat the high fatality rate on South African roads,” said Jason Bloom, Mobileye Regional Manager.
