WABCO Holdings Inc. and Mobileye N.V. have announced that they are joining forces to develop solutions for commercial vehicles that leverage advanced emergency braking ADAS functionalities and Mobileye’s REM technology that provides real-time data for precise localization and high-definition lane data.
The solutions will combine Mobileye’s vision system and mapping technology with the control and actuation technologies from WABCO’s portfolio of electronic braking, stability and emergency braking systems in combination with capability for active steering control. The companies also expect that, through this cooperation, REM data from this vision system in vehicles will be integrated with real-time data gathered from WABCO’s rich onboard source of digital information about the vehicle’s systems and its performance—all of which will be streamed for cloud-based computing and off-vehicle data analytics support.
“Our partnership with industry-leading Mobileye exemplifies our continued technology leadership in advanced driver assistance systems, and it supports WABCO’s pole position to create a ‘cocoon of safety’ around the commercial vehicle through 360-degree sensor detection,” said Jacques Esculier, WABCO’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Mobileye provides major innovation for passenger cars, allowing us to bring this level of intelligence to support commercial vehicles.”
“Our cooperation with WABCO, a world leader in safety enabling technologies for commercial vehicles, adds value to our systems by providing full actuation of the brakes and by leveraging WABCO’s sophistication in advanced braking systems for commercial vehicles,” said Ziv Aviram, Mobileye’s co-founder, president and chief executive officer. “The inclusion of our innovative REM technology into the WABCO-Mobileye system further enhances its capabilities and creates a system with a high degree of safety for the benefit of commercial vehicle manufacturers and operators.”
