The technology company Cyberwan, which has developed a unique system that provides a solution to the problem of distraction while driving as a result of using a cell phone, announced this morning to the stock exchange that it has signed a cooperation agreement with the Israel Police.
As part of the pilot, the company and the Israel Police will conduct a study on 40 police vehicles, 20 of which will not have a cybervan system (control group) installed and the other 20 will install a cybervan system to prevent distraction from using the cell phone while driving. In this way, the Israeli police are interested in examining the proof of the effectiveness of the cybervan system in preventing the police from being distracted from using their cell phones.
The study will examine the behavior of police officers while driving by collecting data from two or three safety systems installed on police vehicles about how police officers drive and the behavior of vehicles.
The company believes that as the research data confirms the effectiveness of the cybervan system, it is possible to deepen the commercial contract with the Israel Police, one of the largest and most diverse vehicle fleets in Israel, numbering about 5,000 non-operational vehicles, including trucks, vans and private vehicles.
Also, good data in the study may have a positive impact on advancing regulation that will require the installation of cellular distraction systems. It should be noted that in respect of the pilot, the company was approved a grant from the Innovation Authority at a rate of 75% of a budget of approximately NIS 802 thousand.
About a month ago, the company reported that it had received an order for 250 cybervan systems that would be installed in the Millennium Group’s fleet vehicles over a period of 12 months. The agreement with Millennium is the first commercial agreement of the company that has already executed or is in the process of being executed, by dozens of pilots in large companies and organizations, including: the IDF, Israel Railways, IEC, Tnuva, Champion Motors, Pronari Israel, R&B and more.
In addition to ordering the 250 systems, Cybervan and Millennium, which is considered one of the largest logistics and services groups in Israel, agreements have been reached on cooperation between them, according to which Millennium will act as the exclusive distributor and installer of cybervan systems in the field of trucks.
As part of this, the Millennium Group, which operates licensed garages for the Duff, Mann and Mercedes truck brands, will work, along with the company’s sales activities, to distribute cybervan systems to truck industry customers who will be referred to the company for the millennium fee for each cybervan system . Millennium will also serve as an authorized and exclusive installer of cybervan systems in the field of trucks in exchange for payment for each such installation.
The cybervan system is designed to address the distraction problem of drivers who use various applications on the mobile device while driving and endanger road users. According to studies, the annual cost of road accidents in the US alone is about $ 300 billion, with 25% of accidents related to the use of the mobile device while driving. The company’s technology prevents distraction by preventing access to various applications on the device and does not require cooperation. The driver while creating a quiet and safe driving environment.
The company’s primary target market includes commercial and private vehicle fleets in which the company’s system will be installed in order to reduce risks and reduce costs due to road accidents involving their drivers. Insurance and leasing companies as well as companies that manage vehicle fleets have a strong interest in reducing damages and costs as a result of road accidents
