Anti-collision device launched

A device that warns drivers about collisions was launched today to about 100 transportation and logistics companies. 

The Mobileye Telematics Advanced Driver Assistance System (Mobileye) consists of a smart camera mounted on the vehicle's windshield. 

It analyses and monitors road conditions to warn the driver of impending collisions and provide other precautionary safety alerts. 

Speaking at the launch event, Senior Minister of State for Home Affairs, Masagos Zulkifli, said it's an excellent ground up initiative where the industry has taken the lead and approached the government to collaborate on a project to improve road safety for vocational drivers. 

Mobileye is an integral part of the Singapore Transport Association's Driver Safety Framework which aims to improve driver safety and boost the productivity of member companies. 

The framework also includes educating drivers on the tenets of good driving behaviour, avoiding and eradicating any dangerous driving habits.
