B-Line buses trial life-saving technology

Published: 14 Sep 2018

The B-Line bus fleet will trial a safety device that will offer customers and road users a new level of protection.

All B-Line buses will trial Mobileye, a forward-facing collision avoidance technology system developed by Intel.

The Mobileye device will use audio and visual signals to alert a driver to potential collisions and provide lane departure warnings.

Mobileye was first trialled on a B-Line bus earlier in 2018 before being rolled out to all 38 B-Line buses.

Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said the state-of-the-art safety feature could benefit all road users.

“Public transport safety is a top priority for the NSW Government, so investing in a trial of technology that could save lives and prevent injuries was an easy decision to make,” Mr Constance said.

“Our B-Line drivers will now have a third eye on the road to help keep customers and other road users safe.”
