Mobileye has revealed the company’s latest partnerships, deals and achievements at the CES 2020.
Mobileye — at CES 2020 — revealed new growth metrics demonstrating the strength of Intel’s fastest-growing business, including more than 54 million EyeQ chips shipped to date. The sales recorded by Mobileye touched nearly $1 billion in 2029 driven by significant growth in the ADAS market.
At CES 2020, Mobileye CEO Amnon Shashua showed a 23-minute drive of an autonomous vehicle (AV) using camera-only sensors.
During his CES address, Amnon Shashua provided tour of Mobileye’s computer vision technology, showed how the company’s mapping strategy is helping the company achieve scale, and introduced deals for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and driverless mobility-as-a-service (MaaS).
Amnon Shashua discussed VIDAR, Mobileye’s solution for achieving outputs akin to lidar using only camera sensors.
In addition, he detailed how Mobileye achieves pixel-level scene segmentation that can be used to detect tiny fragments of road users such as wheelchairs, open vehicle doors and more, as well as the ways in which Mobileye technology turns two-dimensional sensors into 3D understanding.
Mobileye’s future business is expanding greatly with forays into data monetization and the nascent robotaxi market.
Mobileye, using its crowd-sourced Road Experience Management (REM) technology, has
created a demonstration high-definition map of more than 400 km of Las Vegas roads from over 16,000 drives. Map creation of Nevada-area roads took less than 24 hours.
The Intel-company said this map provides centimeter-level accuracy for thousands of on-road and near-road objects, including 60,000 signs, 20,000 poles and more than 1,500 km of lane centerlines.
The near-real-time capability of REM coupled with the low-bandwidth data upload (approximately 10 kilobits/km) from Mobileye-equipped passenger cars makes this technology practical for both advanced ADAS (L2+) solutions and full AVs including driverless mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) fleets.
Mobileye announced an agreement with SAIC, a Chinese OEM to use Mobileye’s REM mapping technology to map China for L2+ ADAS deployment while paving the way for autonomous vehicles in the country.
Mobileye and Daegu Metropolitan City, South Korea, announced agreement to establish a cooperation to test and deploy robotaxi-based mobility solutions powered by Mobileye’s autonomous vehicle technology.
Mobileye will integrate its self-driving system into vehicles to enable a driverless MaaS operation. The agreement with Daegu City, one of South Korea’s largest metropolitan areas, extends Mobileye’s global MaaS footprint.
