Headline sponsor: Mobileye - Stand P70 and BL4
Mobileye, an Intel company, is a global leader in the development of computer vision and machine learning, data analysis, localisation and mapping for advanced driver assistance systems and autonomous driving.
Mobileye’s technology keeps passengers safer on the roads, reduces the risks of traffic accidents, saves lives and has the potential to revolutionise the driving experience by enabling autonomous driving.
Mobileye’s aftermarket collision avoidance technology is brought to you by the same team developing some of the world’s most sophisticated ADAS technology.
Mobileye’s aftermarket collision avoidance system can be retrofitted to almost any road vehicle.
The system is available with a single forward-facing vision sensor or in a multi-vision sensor system designed specifically for large vehicles plagued with hazardous blind spots.
The vision sensor scans the road ahead and Mobileye’s proprietary algorithms and EyeQ chips detect vehicles, lane markings, speed limit signs, pedestrians and cyclists.
When the system detects the danger of an imminent collision, it warns the driver with visual and audible alerts.
This provides the driver with time to possibly avoid, or at a minimum mitigate the severity of the impending collision.
At least 20 million vehicles worldwide are equipped with Mobileye technology.

RingGo - Stand P6
Business drivers are increasingly dispensing with coins and switching to RingGo’s cashless parking solution.
In July 2016, just over 114,000 parking sessions were paid for via RingGo Corporate accounts. One year on, and the figure is more than 185,000 sessions in the same month – a rise of 61%.
Adam Dolphin, sales director for RingGo Corporate, said: “Most employees simply can’t put their hands on enough coins to pay for business parking, so being able to use RingGo to pay quickly and easily by smartphone app, charging the amount directly to their company’s RingGo Corporate account, obviously appeals. “
Businesses benefit, too – not just from more efficient working, but reduced penalty charge notices as well.

Ken Buckley, head of sales at TCHL, says: “Far too many companies give clients access to online systems and then leave them to their own devices, offering little consultation or value.
“We believe in working with our clients to develop KPI reporting bespoke to their needs and to analyse the data from that reporting and offer best advice from an efficiency and cost perspective.”
Venson Automotive Solutions - Stand B10
Helping fleets to operate safely and cost-effectively will be the key focus of Venson Automotive Solutions at Fleet Management Live.
