Coolest Safety Upgrade for Your Car - Mobileye 560




Some of the newest vehicle safety systems such as lane departure warning and collision warning systems are the features you were probably hoping to get in your next car.  A Company called Mobileye created has been working on a revolutionary safety product that can be outfitted on any car.

The product makes a bold claim of features you may only see in cars that cost well over $50k:
  • Mobileye Headway Monitoring and Warning: Helps the driver keep a safe following distance from the vehicle ahead and alerts the driver when following too closely 
  • Mobileye Forward Collision Warning Alerts the driver of an imminent collision with a vehicle or motorcycle—up to 2.7 seconds before a collision—providing enough time for the driver to react by changing course or applying the brakes 
  • Mobileye Pedestrian Collision Warning Notifies the driver of an impending collision with a pedestrian or bicyclist 
  • Mobileye Lane Departure Warning Warns the driver when there is an unintentional deviation from the driving lanes 
  • Mobileye Intelligent High-Beam Control: Automatically raises and lowers the high-beams without inconveniencing oncoming or preceding traffic 
  • Mobileye Speed Limit Indication: Detects, “reads” and classifies various speed signs and alerts your smartphone when you exceed the speed by a predetermined limit 

Amazingly, the Mobileye 560 can be installed on any vehicle, and uses a single camera discreetly mounted behind the inside rearview mirror to monitor the road ahead. A small display screen provides visual and audible warnings for lane departure, an impending forward collision, or a pedestrian or bicyclist ahead. 

Users can also opt to use their smartphone as a display. The Mobileye 560 can also read speed limit signs, and will issue a warning if a user-set speed threshold above the limit is exceeded. A headlight control dims high beams when it detects oncoming traffic. 

Mobileye’s technology has already been installed in more than one million vehicles around the world. More and more manufacturers, including Ford, GM, Volvo, BMW, Hyundai and Nissan are integrating the Mobileye system into their vehicles.
New features are constantly being developed to enhance and make safer the driving experience. Future generation devices will include camera-only automatic electronic braking, as well as various features enabled by self-driving technologies. 

Now, the million dollar question is, does it work as promised?  And the answer is yes, according to the Consumer Reports testing.
