Brigade Electronics have launched a new artificial intelligent vehicle safety system: CarEYE Safety Angle Turning Assistant.
CarEYE Safety Angle Turning Assistant from EYYES GmbH has been offered by Brigade GmbH in Germany for more than a year and was trialled by its long-standing partner, Geier & Söhne Transportgesellschaft mbH in the country. Geier & Söhne Transportgesellschaft mbH fitted the device, which uses artificial intelligence (AI) technology to detect pedestrians, cyclists and objects, to one of its Mercedes Actros vehicles.
The system’s AI is set up to accurately evaluate the images from cameras fitted to the vehicle and is able to calculate the future course of motion of nearby people or objects. Based on this data, the system reliably and accurately warns the driver in real time of a possible collision before it occurs. Warnings are issued either actively with an audible and visual red alert if a person or object is at risk of being hit, or passively with a visual yellow alert if, for example, a person or object is moving away from the danger zone – dramatically reducing false alerts.
CarEYE has also been rated as a winner in the ADAC performance tests demonstrating its performance and outranking other similar vehicle safety devices on the market. ADAC cited CarEYE’s reliability for reducing false alerts significantly, the visual feedback for drivers being clear and easy to understand, and its quick reaction times for detecting people and objects for its top place position.
Emily Hardy, Marketing Manager of Brigade Electronics UK, said, “The accuracy of CarEYE’s AI makes false alerts extremely rare and provides the driver with absolute peace of mind that they can manoeuvre their vehicle with the utmost safety. The system is able to differentiate between cars, trucks, people, bicycles and static objects, such as trees or bollards. Movement and the expected direction is then calculated, making the system extremely reliable.”
Hardy added, “There were 141 cyclists killed and 4,215 seriously injured due to road traffic collisions in 2020. One in three of these accidents could have been prevented with a sideguard assistant, such as CarEYE. This makes such technology crucial in enhancing safety for every road user and helping to save lives.”
