Mobileye and Geely, Volvo’s parent company, are set to expand and extend their collaboration in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicle technology. The announcement is the next step following the launch of the Zeekr 001 premium electric vehicle, which features Mobileye SuperVision technology and of which more than 40,000 vehicles have already been registered. An over-the-air (OTA) update will unlock the full capabilities of SuperVision.
Geely now plans to launch three more brands under the Geely Holding Group umbrella globally with electric vehicle models equipped with Mobileye SuperVision technology from next year. Furthermore, Zeekr will introduce Mobileye SuperVision on two new electric vehicle models as well as co-develop new lidar-based features with Mobileye.
Zeekr 001 is equipped with Surround Vision-based assistance functions with special safety features. The systems will be continuously updated. It is expected that by the end of this year, the system will receive full SuperVision features via over-the-air updates, which are expected to take the driving experience of Zeekr customers to a new level.
However, Zeekr is by no means relying solely on Mobileye for the electronic equipment in its vehicles. Only recently, Mobileye competitor Nvidia announced that Zeekr would equip its vehicles with its new Drive Thor system.
Mobileye Supervision draws its computing power from two 7nm EyeQ5 SoCs. The system supports assisted driving for a wide range of road types, from motorways to rural roads to roads in urban areas. Mobileye SuperVision handles tasks such as autonomous lane changes, navigation at intersections, management of key driving tasks, automatic parking, and preventive steering and braking. The system relies on eleven high-resolution cameras – seven long-range cameras and four parking cameras. This ensures complete visual coverage of the vehicle’s surroundings.
Mobileye is considered a leader in the development of camera sensing and machine learning technologies, data analytics, localisation and mapping for driver assistance systems and autonomous driving solutions. Mobileye’s proprietary software algorithms and EyeQ chips perform detailed interpretations of the field of view to anticipate potential collisions with other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, animals, debris and other obstacles.
