Virginia is the first U.S. state to implement the statewide use of vision and driver assistance systems on its public transportation vehicles. Shield+ is a system developed by Mobileye specifically for buses and other large vehicles. It is an expansion of Mobileye’s original DAS technology and utilizes up to four sensors for improved blind spot detection in urban environments.
As part of its $450,000 pilot program, the department will also fund retrofitting of up to 50 buses with pedestrian collision avoidance systems that alert bus drivers to pedestrians and bicyclists entering the vehicle’s path.
Intel completed its $15.3 billion acquisition of Jerusalem-headquartered Mobileye in August.
