The 2012 Australasian College of Road Safety national conference was held in Sydney at The Menzies Sydney Hotel on 9 and 10 August. The Conference aims were to take road safety to the next level of knowledge and implementation and to assist in the translation of research into action in keeping with the Safe System and Decade of Action for Road Safety. The conference allowed for direct interaction with presenters and was an important opportunity to network with senior practitioners and those with policy responsibilities in Australasia.

The Conference was sponsored by Mobileye (http://acrs.org.au/events/acrs-past-conferences/2012-acrs-conference/current-sponsors/). Mobileye is a technology company that focuses on the development of vision-based Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) providing warnings for collision prevention and mitigation. Mobileye offers a wide range of driver safety solutions combining artificial vision image processing, multiple technological applications and information technology. Mobileye was founded in Israel by Mr. Ziv Aviram and Prof. Amnon Shashua and still today conducts all its R&D out of its offices in Jerusalem, Israel.
After years of testing, Mobileye began to be sold as commercial products to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers. The company’s first clients were automotive manufacturers such as BMW, General Motors, Volvo and Nissan, whose “Tier 1” electronics suppliers integrated Mobileye’s technologies into these company’s cars, at first as an optional accessory when buying a new car, and later to be supplied as a standard fit in specific ranges of new cars.
Since 2007 Mobileye has offered a range of aftermarket vision based ADAS systems, which can be retrofitted to any vehicle. These systems are based on the same core technology adopted by global vehicle makers on their series vehicles. The current range of products offer – Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Headway Monitoring and Warning, Low Speed Urban Collision Warning, Intelligent Headlamp Control, Speed Limit Indication (SLI) and Pedestrian Collision Warning (including bicycles). These systems have also been integrated with fleet management systems, allowing an unprecedented level of driver behaviour and performance information and monitoring to be passed to the fleet manager.
