Are you living or working in a Vision Zero City? We are living in a safety society where emerging technologies help us live and work more effectively and efficiently. This includes striving for zero traffic fatalities. Advances in collision avoidance systems have equipped cars with forward collision warning, speed alert and pedestrian detection technology. In a few years, every car on the road will have these safety technologies in use, resulting in safer roads for vehicles and vulnerable road users (VRUs) including pedestrians and cyclists. What about large vehicles? What about your bus fleet and the ability to do the same?

Join us as we take an in-depth look into the driving environment of large transit buses. Many of us cannot appreciate the complexities that come with operating a 40’ or larger vehicle and maneuvering around VRUs in a busy urban environment. These complexities multiply when the vehicle is turning; blind zones widen and the probability of collisions increase.  These complexities multiply further when VRU distraction due to phones, tablets, and other devices are at an all-time high, and trending upward yet.

This is where the evolution of technology comes into play. The same collision avoidance technology that has proven to work in cars has been developed to adapt to larger vehicles. With multiple smart vision sensors placed strategically around the bus, the Mobileye Shield+ system covers blind zones in the front and sides of the bus where a driver has limited visibility. Tune in and learn how this smart technology can help you gather data and help identify “hot spots” on a bus route or location. To fix a problem, it must first be identified… See how Shield+ can help you do both.

Transportation providers face growing pressure to find solutions for rising liability, timely service, and dramatic increases in ADA ridership and costs in an evolving industry. As these challenges mount, evidence, research and recent technological advancements in rearward facing wheelchair securement have shown it has exciting potential to alleviate many of these concerns, but until recently has remained a foreign concept in the U.S.

This presentation will explore developing ridership trends facing transit providers, offer an overview of the current research on rearward facing securement, and examine how emerging technologies are addressing the previous shortcomings of primitive rearward securement applications. We invite attendees to engage in a thought-provoking discussion about the ridership challenges they will be facing and what the newly available emerging technologies mean for the industry and the future of ADA transportation.

About the Event:

Learn how to turn complex vehicle sensor data into an easy-to-understand and usable format. Making sense of data analytics and vehicle telemetry along with real-time tracking means smarter routing and dispatch, reduced vehicle downtime, proactive maintenance, and lower fuel costs. Effective fleet management enables monitoring of driver behavior, on-time schedules, and enhancing the passenger experience. Integration of fare payment systems, computer-aided dispatch and automatic vehicle locator (CAD/AVL), onboard video surveillance, Wi-Fi and 3G/4G connectivity along with real customer stories will also be discussed.
