Mobileye, an Intel company, has revealed it will supply driver-assistance system (ADAS) to Geely Auto Group, a leading auto manufacturer in China, for its premium electric vehicle (EV).
The new Zero Concept EV will feature Lynk & Co’s CoPilot solution powered by Mobileye SuperVision surround-view advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) with over-the-air (OTA) update capabilities.
Geely Auto Group aims to deliver advanced driver-assist features to consumers beginning in fall 2021 by utilizing Mobileye’s SuperVision system based on Mobileye’s EyeQ5 system-on-chip (SoC).
Geely Auto Group said it delivered over 300,000 Lynk & Co units to customers.
Geely Auto Group CEO An Conghui said: “Lynk & Co CoPilot powered by Mobileye’s SuperVision system will bring the advanced vision-based driving-assistance technology to the production version of the Lynk & Co Zero Concept.”
“Our collaboration with Geely is a game changer for the global automotive industry as it brings our industry-leading surround-vision technology to market in one of the most advanced driver-assistance systems,” said Amnon Shashua, senior vice president at Intel and president and chief executive officer of Mobileye.
Geely and Mobileye announced a high-volume ADAS agreement to equip a variety of Geely Auto Group makes and models with Mobileye vision-sensing technology. The agreement will see multiple Geely Auto Group brands and vehicles outfitted with Mobileye-powered ADAS features such as automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assist.
Geely Auto Group manages several leading brands including Geely Auto, Lynk & Co, Proton Cars, Lotus, and Geometry. The group employs more than 50,000 people, operates 12 plants, five global R&D centers in Hangzhou, Ningbo, Gothenburg, Coventry and Frankfurt.
