In a visit to Mobileye headquarters in Jerusalem on Thursday, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced a pilot program to enhance the safety of existing state and city fleets through the application of Mobileye 8 Connect aftermarket systems for collision avoidance. The trial is part of Michigan leaders’ objective to enhance road safety today while paving the way for the autonomous vehicles (AVs) of tomorrow.

In her meeting with Mobileye President and CEO Professor Amnon Shashua, Whitmer explored ways that Mobileye technology could be used to improve road safety, reduce collision-related costs, gain insight into local collision hotspots, and prepare the state for broad deployment of robotaxis and AVs.

“This program will demonstrate the potential of driving assistance technology to save lives, reduce collision-related costs and help diminish traffic congestion,” Whitmer said. “Our work with Mobileye highlights the number of contributions Michigan brings to the world of mobility and will help us advance technology and improve the quality of life for countless people. I’m proud to collaborate with Mobileye and eager to continue our work to transform the automotive landscape and solidify Michigan as a world leader in mobility.”
