Eight Million Cars In Europe To Get Mobileye Self-Driving Tech

Autonomous driving company Mobileye will supply eight million cars in Europe with its self-driving technologies, Reuters reports.

The company, which previously worked with Tesla, has signed an exclusive supply deal with an undisclosed European automaker.

Mobileye will start supplying its systems from 2021 when it introduces its EyeQ5 chip, designed for fully autonomous driving and to replace the EyeQ4 chip that will be launched in the coming weeks. Senior vice president for advanced development and strategy at Mobileye, Erez Dagan, revealed that the system will be made to work with the carmaker’s models with partial automation as well as those with more advanced systems.

Mobileye currently works with the likes of General Motors, Nissan, Audi, BMW, Honda, Fiat Chrysler and Nio to supply Level 3 autonomous technologies. The company is testing Level 4 technology in various Ford Fusion hybrid prototypes at its headquarters in Jerusalem. These test vehicles incorporate 12 cameras and four EyeQ4 chips.

“By the end of 2019, we expect over 100,000 Level 3 cars with Mobileye installed,” Mobileye chief executive Amnon Shashua revealed.

Shashua also told Reuters that Mobileye is designing its autonomous systems for self-driving taxi fleets and is developing test vehicles to mimic human behavior.

“On one hand you want to be safe but on the other hand assertive. In the future, the system will observe other drivers on the road and after a certain amount of time adapts to driving conditions … It’s not unlike a human experience,” he said.
