Intel’s Mobileye is collaborating with Ford on sensor technology for future vehicles
The Israeli company’s name will be displayed in all future SYNC driver-assist communication displays
Mobileye has agreed to provide its EyeQ family of devices, as well as its vision-processing software, to support autonomous vehicles up to Level 1 and Level 2. This includes its Lane-Keeping System, Auto-High-Beam headlamps, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, and Adaptive Cruise Control. Levels 1 and 2 still require drivers to supervise the performance of the vehicle at all times.
Mobileye’s technology will be included in Ford’s next generation of production vehicles, starting with F-150 and Mustang Mach-E, as well as any other vehicle that provides Level 1 and Level 2 automation.
While it is not the first time Mobileye has collaborated with Ford, it is the first time that Ford is committing to its technology for an entire lifecycle of its vehicles.Mobileye was founded in 1999 by Amnon Shashua. In 2017, Intel bought the company for $15.3 billion, making it one of the largest Israeli acquisitions in history.
