Telematics are an essential part of running an efficient fleet. For Fleet and Safety Managers, however, are they enough? And if not, how are they best supplemented?
Mobileye, its Russian distributor INCO, and Russian insurer VSK have together launched a strategic collaboration aimed at increasing road safety while lowering costs for insurance companies, cost reductions which can then be passed on to consumers. These lower costs will, in turn, give insurers a distinct edge in a highly competitive market.
Probably the most important step toward smarter, greener cities is learning how to integrate a wide variety of transportation types. Cutting down on private cars is key to reducing congestion and pollution but they need to be replaced by something – walking and cycling are the greenest substitutes, supplemented by buses for mass transportation. And of course lorries will always be needed for deliveries and other services that just can’t be replaced. This is where smart city planners hit a stumbling block – roads are being dominated by both larger vehicles and the most vulnerable road users – pedestrians and cyclists.
In 2016, 175,791 road accidents occurred in Italy resulting in death or injury, with 3,283 deaths.¹
Even though Italy experienced an overall decrease of 4.2% compared to 2015, there was an increase in the number of collisions among vulnerable road users, such as cyclists and moped drivers.
ACI (Automobile Club of Italy) and SARA Assicurazioni decided to take action by promoting Mobileye’s collision avoidance system.
Fleet Managers are torn in different directions – you’ve got to keep your drivers safe and your fleet running at peak efficiency, while at the same time balancing a tight budget. One example of this balancing act is the implementation of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) or collision avoidance systems in fleet vehicles.

One of the UK’s largest food distributors is using Mobileye’s safety technology to make journeys safer for its drivers and other road users.
Zero collisions is a big claim to make. Yet, this is the actual result which we have seen in a 60-vehicle pilot with Winslow Construction Group in Australia.
