Mobileye Shield+ collision avoidance technology offers the latest in advanced driver assistance systems for large vehicles, including refuse trucks. In addition to all the benefits of the single camera Mobileye, Shield+ uses three cameras to provide drivers with alerts when vulnerable road users (VRUs) like pedestrians and cyclists are on a collision course with the vehicle. VRUs are often not seen by the operator due to large blind zones around the vehicle, especially when making left and right turns.  

Whether a straightaway or turn, the smart vision multicamera system is tuned with sophisticated algorithms and years of Mobileye® experience to filter out VRU proximity that is not at risk. All while locking in and following VRU proximity and course if deemed to likely be a collision. The system uses intelligent vision cameras to identify a diverse variety of potential dangers on the road, like vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and more. The distance and relative speeds are continuously measured to calculate the risk of the driver colliding with them. Even lane markings and traffic signs are detected. Truck operating conditions on congested, urban streets demand the highest level of awareness by the vehicle operator. Mobileye Shield+ increases awareness and safety for the driver and VRUs to help prevent or mitigate potential collisions.
