Collaboration brings real-time sensor data to public transit

December 20th, 2017, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Spatial analytics software company Esri is collaboration with Mobileye, a provider of advanced driver-assistance systems software, to integrate Esri mapping, analysis, and visualisation with Mobileye’s Shield+ product. This collaboration will provide cities with the ability to visualise and analyse real-time location data from Shield+ to improve pedestrian safety. The driver-assistance systems software will stream road safety data retrieved from city fleets into the ArcGIS platform, where information such as pedestrian and cyclist detection in blind spots can be viewed on the Mobileye Smart Mobility Dashboard.

Shield+ alerts will be updated to the dashboard in real-time, providing a city-wide view of pedestrian and cyclist safety. Amongst other things, this will allow users such as municipal bus drivers to then receive alerts about imminent hazards seconds before a potential collision, and to have a better, safer awareness of the roads they travel. Mobileye technologies for advanced driver assistance systems and autonomous driving. Its proprietary software algorithms and EyeQ chips perform detailed interpretations of the visual field in order to anticipate possible collisions with other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, animals, debris and other obstacles.
