Re: Have They Installed Blind Spot Cameras on The Sides of the 73xx Series Buses?

Posted by Stephen Bauman on Thu Feb 16 22:41:12 2017, in response to Have They Installed Blind Spot Cameras on The Sides of the 73xx Series Buses?, posted by heypaul on Thu Feb 16 15:10:53 2017.

They appear to be the RoscoVision Shield+ Technology sensors. The MTA committed to try it out during a City Council hearing. Here's a link to the company's web page.

The MTA was pushed into this by the City Council. Two interesting points. Rosco is a local company (Jamaica Queens). (N.B. the detection technology isn't local. It's MobilEye, which is an Israeli company.)

The MTA has averaged $20K per bus in annual liability awards. That's about 3 times the national average. The RoscoVision system cost per bus is less than a single year's liability awards.
