Mr Windscreen was a finalist in the category “Independent Aftersales Operation of the Year” for the 2020 Irish Motor Industry Awards, run by the Society of the Irish Motor Industry (SIMI) in association with Bank of Ireland.
The overall Award winner was announced in each of the eight categories at a special ceremony held in conjunction with the SIMI Annual Dinner in the Clayton Hotel in Dublin in February with comedian Oliver Callan as Master of Ceremonies.
The expansion of calibration capability through the fitting out of new outlets, the integration of Mobileye’s Collision Avoidance Systems into the ADAS.ie product range and the development of a uniquely comprehensive telematics solution for the private sector were among the company’s key achievements over the past year.
Now in its 10th year, the awards recognise and celebrate the amazing successes achieved by Irish businesses in the automotive sector over the last 12 months.
ADAS.ie, an arm of Mr Windscreen, is at the vanguard of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems in Ireland, with technology capable of calibrating over 80% of vehicles on the road, and calibration centres across the country. Recently appointed as distributors for Mobileye, a world leader in ADAS technology, ADAS.ie can now retrofit the latest in life-saving Collision Avoidance Systems in older fleets and municipal vehicles.
The systems include features like lane departure warning, pedestrian and cyclist collision warning, forward collision warning and headway monitoring, which are communicated via a dash-mounted screen. Such features are Increasingly standard on new vehicles, but up until now there was almost no means for Irish motorists and companies to enjoy them in their existing cars or fleets.
Manufactured by Mobileye, an Intel-owned company whose technology is fitted to over 30 million vehicles worldwide, the system is neatly and professionally fitted by expert technicians at any one of the dedicated ADAS.ie centres across Ireland.
With the MobiIeye technology, ADAS.ie can make these safety features available not only to private or company cars, but also for buses and large municipal vehicles, with systems specially designed to scan the specific blindspots and to address other challenges which drivers of these vehicles face. In the introductory phase, ADAS.ie will concentrate on spelling out the many benefits of these systems to insurers, fleet operators and public transport operators in particular.
