Fleet Maintenance Magazine - inthinc chooses Mobileye to provide collision prevention and mitigation technology
06/23/2011 - inthinc Technology Solutions Inc., a global telematics company centered on fleet management and driver safety solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with Mobileye, the market leader in driver safety systems and collision prevention and mitigation technologies. inthinc will integrate Mobileye’s real-time driver assistance solution, complete with camera-based lane departure warning, forward collision warning and headway monitoring warning, into its fleet management offering. Mobileye provides additional collision-avoidance safety measures for fleet drivers, as well as those sharing the road in an effort to help prevent and mitigate vehicle collisions.
“Our goal in partnering with Mobileye is to provide customers with the most effective tools to reduce accidents and promote fleet safety across their organizations,” said Todd Follmer, CEO of inthinc Technology Solutions. “Unlike other driving safety systems that rely on improving safety by recording driver behavior for post-trip analysis, our system changes the behavior at the time and place of a driver incident, in hopes of preventing a collision entirely or assuaging negative effects.”
Mobileye’s solution will be integrated into the inthinc Portal—a web-based dashboard that provides fleet managers with real-time data around vehicle location (GPS), trip details, driver behavior and other performance indicators. The portal delivers each driver’s ‘score’ to help organizations understand where improvements are needed. The inthinc algorithm will integrate the data provided by Mobileye’s solution as an additional resource in determining a driver’s overall safety score.
“inthinc’s integration of our real-time collision avoidance technology into its existing solution extends both the literal vision of its drivers, and the visibility of fleet managers,” said Skip Kinford, CEO for Mobileye, Inc. “inthinc views our solution not as an expenditure, but as an investment, both in the safety of their customers and in the reduction of accident-related costs.”
inthinc’s partnership with Mobileye will not only add valuable camera-based functionality to its arsenal of driver behavior and fleet management capabilities, but will also allow customers to manage all aspects of safety and fleet monitoring from one unique source.
