During the pilot, SDS systems will be installed in the vehicles of
selected fleet customers of Berkshire Hathaway GUARD Insurance Companies
to evaluate whether the installation will reduce the frequency and
severity of their claims. The vehicles will be equipped with SDS's RD140
Anti-Collision Radar System, supplemented with the SDS Fleet Management
System (FMS) including real-time tracking abilities, report generation
software, driver behavior scoring, and the Fleet SDS mobile application.

"What makes SDS unique is that it offers the only collision-avoidance
technology that combines both radar and a camera," articulates Tuvi
Cohen, President and CEO of SDS. "This powerful combination ensures the
highest safety possible, even at night or when visibility is impaired
due to inclement weather conditions." The RD140 Anti-Collision Radar
System can be installed in any vehicle manufactured after 2006 and comes
with a 24-month warranty.

"We welcome and look forward to the partnership with Berkshire Hathaway
GUARD Insurance Companies," noted Cohen. "It is promising to see more
companies and organizations embracing technology as a way to mitigate
accidents, especially considering that 90% of car accidents are caused
by human error."

"Our decision to participate in this proof-of-concept pilot project is a
reflection of our commitment to the safety of the drivers we insure,"
states Sy Foguel, President and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway GUARD
Insurance Companies. "We have begun exploring a number of ways in which
technology can benefit our customers."
