Mobileye, a developer of front-facing camera based driving assistance systems, and Valeo, a company specializing in driving assistance systems and laser scanner technology, have joined forces to combine Mobileye’s EyeQ® family of microprocessors and computer vision algorithms with Valeo’s strong driving assistance sensor portfolio.
Under the cooperation agreement, Valeo will design and industrialize a range of front-facing camera solutions and sensor fusion products using Mobileye’s EyeQ® family of microprocessors and computer vision algorithms. The product portfolio will include monocular cameras for active safety applications to satisfy regulatory requirements for collision avoidance, fusion with non-scanning LED, fusion with radar and trifocal camera configurations for high-end customer functions. The product offering will be designed for scalability and is expected to run on a single Mobileye EyeQx® system-on-chip. During the term of the agreement, the front-facing camera technology offered by Valeo will be based solely on Mobileye’s EyeQ® family of microprocessors and computer vision algorithms.
In addition, Mobileye and Valeo have joined forces in an exclusive cooperation to develop an innovative joint product proposition for the Automated Driving Market, combining vision and laser scan. The combination of Valeo’s global presence and excellent technology portfolio, including market-leading Laser Scan Technology, with Mobileye’s unique expertise on image processing technology will allow both partners to create unique solutions for future autonomous cars.
A pioneer in the field of intuitive driving, Valeo is developing an extensive range of high-technology systems using ultrasonic sensors, radar, cameras powered by EyeQx®, laser scanners and software to make the car of the future more energy-efficient, safer and more intuitive to drive. The relationship with Mobileye is expected to further strengthen Valeo’s leadership on the path towards autonomous and intuitive cars.
