Fleet operators had hands-on experience of the latest vehicle safety technology at an event held by Arval, Bosch and Thatcham Research to coincide with UK Road Safety week.
The first ‘eSafetyAware Driving Experience’ event, which took place at the MIRA proving grounds in Warwickshire, allowed Arval customers to try a wide range of vehicles containing Advanced Driver Assist Systems like Autonomous Emergency Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping and Parking Assistant.
Attendees were given an overview of the latest systems and how they contribute to Euro NCAP testing ratings and they heard from experts at Bosch and Thatcham Research on the latest developments in eSafety systems.
Tracey Fuller, CSR manager at Arval, said: “This event is consistent with our strategy of giving customers the opportunity to test the latest vehicle technologies so that they can gain first-hand practical experience and build a better understanding of how they can benefit their business.”
"Arval has been a supporter of eSafety for a number of years as part of the company’s ongoing programme to positively influence the safety of road users in the UK.”
The event was supported by the Chief Fire Officers Association.
