With FUSO’s cab-over-engine design that increases the driver’s visibility, the addition of Mobileye systems further enhances the safe operation of the truck, especially in the densely populated urban areas.
The Mobileye system’s forward-looking sensors act as a never-distracted and never-fatigued “third eye” and can detect and warn of an imminent rear-end collision at any vehicle speed, with up to 2.7 seconds of advance notice. The Mobileye system identifies pedestrians and cyclists during daylight hours and alerts drivers in the event of a possible collision.
The headway monitor assists the driver in maintaining a safe following distance from the vehicle in front, displaying the amount of time, in seconds, to the vehicle in front when that time drops below 2.5 seconds. A green vehicle icon signifies safe headway, a red icon signifies unsafe and the system provides an alert if the time becomes dangerously short. The lane departure warning alerts the driver when the vehicle departs from the driving lane without turn signals, by displaying a right- or left-lane icon, as appropriate.
The system also detects and classifies various speed limit signs and provides a visual alert when the vehicle's speed exceeds the posted speed limit by 10mph. If conditions such as bad weather, direct sunlight or a dirty windshield might compromise the sensors’ detection range, the system dims the display to alert the driver.
