Food distributor and manufacturer Adelie Foods has invested in Mobileye’s safety technology for its new fleet.
The fleet does 24,500 journeys every week, and covers more than 12.5 million miles each year. The technology automatically alerts a fleet driver to various road dangers for 30 new 3.5 tonne delivery vehicles. It also providers visual and aural alerts in the event of an imminent collision with another vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist, unintended lane departure, an unsafe headway time, and speeding.
“At the heart of the FTG industry is distribution,” said Glenn Buick, distribution Manager, Adelie Foods. “The safety of our drivers, of other road users, and of the communities we serve is our top priority.
“We have an excellent safety record but Mobileye will give us an extra layer of protection, as well as ensuring drivers constantly meet the incredibly high standards we expect of them.
“If a vehicle in front brakes suddenly, for example, Mobileye will automatically alert the driver providing additional time to avoid a rear end shunt. We are already getting fantastic feedback from drivers who have trialled the system in their vehicles to date and found it both highly effective and straightforward to use.”
