IsraLimo to outfit its entire chauffeured vehicles fleet with Awacs Driver Assistance system

Israel’s largest luxury transportation company is to install multiple computer-vision enabled safety technologies on its fleet of more than 20 luxury vehicles and limousines.
Dec. 14, 2010 - PRLog -- Tel Aviv, December 9th, 2010 – Awacs, a global pioneer and leader in computer vision-based driver assistance systems, has been selected by IsraLimo Rental Car Ltd., the country’s largest premier transportation service provider, to equip its entire fleet of high-end vehicles with this innovative driving assistance product.

The camera-based safety features to be installed on each vehicle will include a lane departure warning (LDW) system, a forward collision warning (FCW) system, and a headway monitoring and warning (HMW) system.   The only driver safety solution offering the three essential accident-prevention warnings in one unit, Awacs includes a smart camera located on the front windshield inside the vehicle and utilizes Awacs advanced vision technologies to detect and measure the distance to vehicles and to lane markings, providing the driver with timely alerts.

The forward collision warning assists in preventing collisions with vehicles ahead by alerting drivers to both moving and stationary vehicles, while filtering cars in adjacent lanes posing no threat. The lane departure function monitors the vehicle position in the lane and alerts the driver to departures from a lane without using the appropriate turn signal.  

Maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle ahead is a task drivers tend to underestimate, resulting in accidents caused by insufficient distance keeping. Awacs headway monitoring function calculates the distance from the vehicle ahead, providing the driver with headway data.

A company widely recognized for excellence in delivering on time and without incident services, IsraLimo also recognizes its role in keeping Israel’s roads as safe as possible. “Our drivers collectively spend hundreds of hours per day on the road. Their safety, and the safety of our VIP guests, is a crucial element in our success as a company,” said Arie Linsker, IsraLimo’s CEO.   “Awacs has provided us and our clients with these three essential driving assistance features in a single package that will protect our vehicles, the traveling public, and the valuable guests we transport every day.”

The desire to continually improve its driver safety program led the chauffeured car service company to contact Awacs.  Both companies agreed to participate in a joint 90-day pilot test program – a program that exceeded IsraLimo’s performance and safety expectations.  IsraLimo will begin installing Awacs technology immediately, and will equip the entire fleet over the coming months.
