Mobileye®

REAL-TIME COLLISION AVOIDANCE*

FUSO’s collision avoidance system provides you with audible and visual alerts for speeding, lane departure, and potential pedestrian or vehicle collisions, so that you can take corrective action to prevent costly accidents.

Mobileye® has recently undergone rigorous testing with our FUSO fleet, proving it can reduce hazardous driver behavior by 50%.

The Mobileye collision avoidance system is the latest advancement in crash prevention. The system analyzes the risk of forward collision, lane departure, headway/following time, excessive speed, and pedestrian hazards. When a threat is detected, Mobileye warns the driver with visual and audible alerts – in real time. This allows drivers time to react, correct, and possibly avoid a collision. On the road, danger can appear in the blink of an eye. Stay safe with the advance warning of Mobileye.

PROVEN EFFECTIVE.

Mobileye is the leading provider of collision avoidance technology to the majority of the world’s auto manufacturers. In fact, over 15 million vehicles worldwide are equipped with Mobileye technology. And, in our own testing here at FUSO, Mobileye has proven to reduce hazardous driving behavior by 50%.

REDUCE COLLISIONS, SAVE COSTS.

FORWARD COLLISION WARNING

Rear-end collisions are one of the most common accidents caused by driver inattention. The Mobileye system continuously scans the road in front of the vehicle and alerts the driver to an imminent rear-end collision with a car, truck, or motorcycle.

LANE DEPARTURE WARNING

Unintended lane departure is the leading cause of serious accidents. Mobileye detects lane markings and alerts the driver if the vehicle leaves the lane without the use of a turn signal.

HEADWAY MONITORING & WARNING

Many drivers underestimate how close they are to the vehicle ahead, leaving insufficient time to react when necessary. Mobileye displays the time, in seconds, to the vehicle in front. The system switches from monitoring to warning when that time becomes unsafe.

PEDESTRIAN AND CYCLIST COLLISION WARNING

Pedestrians and cyclists are the most vulnerable road users.Mobileye alerts the driver of an imminent collision with a pedestrian or cyclist.**

SPEED LIMIT INDICATOR

Mobileye reads speed limit signs and alerts the driver when the vehicle exceeds the posted speed limit.

*Optional feature.
** This feature only works during daylight hours.

Other Safety Features Available on FUSO Trucks

DUAL-CALIPER DISC BRAKES ON ALL WHEELS

You’re getting more pad and more grip all around. Which means plenty of braking performance––and confidence––in extreme situations as well as during normal stop-and-start driving. By providing disc brakes with two calipers instead of one, heat distribution to each pad is reduced, so there’s little likelihood of overheating.

ACCELERATION RATE MANAGEMENT

This is a great tool for both safe driving and fuel conservation. Our acceleration rate management software helps prevent aggressive driving practices by automatically controlling engine torque and limiting vehicle acceleration to a specified rate.

CRUISE CONTROL

When engaged, cruise control allows drivers to maintain a consistent, legal speed without watching the speedometer. It’s a valuable safety feature that helps prevent speeding––a factor in over 50% of commercial truck accidents. Traveling at or below posted speed saves fuel and is easier on the vehicle.

102" - WIDE MIRRORS

Every driver wants to see more of the world outside the cab. That’s why we include wide-angle side mirrors that dramatically increase the driver’s field of view. The 102” view provides extra visibility, keeping you safe––and compliant––on the road and at the loading dock.

DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS

It’s just common sense: The more visible you make your truck, the less chance of  having an accident. That’s why we include daytime running lights on the FE GAS. This additional safety feature makes your truck easier for other drivers to see during daylight hours, reducing the chance of collision.

OPEN FLOORBOARD

Here’s a design upgrade that really works in your favor. We moved the shifter from the floor to the dashboard. The now-unobstructed cab floor assures plenty of space and allows more room for a third passenger. It makes getting in and out on the passenger side easier and safer, especially in heavy traffic.

HIGH-VISIBILITY RED SEATBELTS

Those bright red seatbelts are more than just a FUSO brand signature. They’re designed to assure high visibility and improve safety. The impossible-to-ignore color provides a great reminder for driver and passengers to buckle up.

KEY/KEYLESS ENTRY

Keyless entry is a feature that allows vehicle access without the use of the traditional mechanical key. It provides greater security and convenience by letting the driver lock and unlock the vehicle while standing at a distance from it. A standard key is also included.

IMPACT-ABSORBING STEERING COLUMN

In the event of a frontal collision, this valuable safety feature helps prevent the steering main shaft from injuring the driver. The column is engineered to absorb energy from a collision, preventing the impact force from reaching the driver. Also, doors on the FE GAS truck feature anti-crush bars that help protect cab occupants.
