Collision avoidance technology from Mobileye, an Intel company, continues to extend robust safety benefits to fleets all over the world, helping them reduce collisions and the steep associated costs. Using Mobileye’s safety system, P&B Transport, a transportation and logistics company, has dramatically improved its fleet’s road safety, reducing overall collision rates by 80 percent. P&B specializes in next-day deliveries to some of the most congested, accident-prone locations in the northeastern U.S.
In 2014, after identifying a need to help its drivers reduce the frequency of rear-end collisions, P&B managers decided to pilot collision avoidance systems from Mobileye. The company noticed immediate improvements in driving habits among its drivers, with collision rates dropping significantly and rear-end collisions almost entirely eliminated. Although P&B’s drivers were initially hesitant about Mobileye’s collision avoidance system, they quickly began to appreciate its benefits. Today, the drivers swear by the safety possible via Mobileye’s technology – enjoying the extra pair of eyes looking out for them, as well as the greater efficiency enabled in their day-to-day work thanks to fewer collisions.
In the years since initially implementing Mobileye technology, P&B has reduced its costs from insurance claims for collision damage by over 97 percent and seen its insurance rating improve to AAA. For companies like P&B, Mobileye’s collision avoidance system offers a powerful means to reduce collisions and the costs they can create, while making safer drivers.
