Mobileye to supply cameras, software for Valeo's future ADAS

March 12, 2015 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Automotive suppliers Mobileye and Valeo have joined forces to develop future vision-based Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). In a recently signed agreement the companies determine to combine Mobileye's EyeQ family of microprocessors, computer vision algorithms and sensor fusion techniques with Valeo's ADAS 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 partners intend to leverage Valeo's global presence and technology portfolio, including laser scan technology, with Mobileye's expertise on image processing technology to create viable solutions for future autonomous cars.

Valeo is currently developing a range of sophisticated 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.
