Vehicle data can save lives and now Mercedes-Benz is taking the next decisive step. London is one of the first European cities exploring how data from vehicles, starting with data from the Mercedes-Benz driver assistance systems, could make the city’s streets safer for everyone, in particular for people walking and cycling.
In this talk, Mercedes-Benz Road Safety Dashboard, which has been developed by Mercedes-Benz Urban Mobility Solutions (UMS) division together with Transport for London (TfL), will be presented.
The digital tool has the potential to identify higher risk locations prior to an incident taking place:
“With the Mercedes-Benz Road Safety Product, we can identify neuralgic points that pose a risk to vulnerable road users. That's the great thing about this tool: we can now shift from a reactive planning to a proactive planning before a crash happens,” says Rikesh Shah, head of commercial innovation at Transport for London.
