Mobileye’s camera-based EyeQ technology will be used to support Ford’s ‘Co-Pilot360’ systems which include assists such as lane-keeping, pre-collision automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.
Specifically, EyeQ devices and vision processing software will be used in Level 1 and Level 2 driver-assistance in Ford vehicles globally.
Branding for Mobileye will be visible in Ford’s communication displays.
“By customizing Mobileye’s excellent software and sensing technology, Ford’s great driver-assist features will continue to evolve and provide customers with confidence on the road throughout the life of their vehicles,” said Lisa Drake, Ford chief operating officer, North America.
Amnon Shashua, Mobileye chief executive, added: “It is a privilege to extend and expand our long-standing collaboration with a company that is so committed to safety on behalf of its global customer base.
“We look forward to working closely together to bring these functionalities to market in the full Ford product lineup.”
Level 1 systems are those that automate one part of the driving experience - like steering, acceleration, or deceleration – while Level 2 assist in more than one element. Both require driver supervision.
