Collaborating with Intel’s MobileEye autonomous driving unit, Ford will develop improved collision avoidance systems for future Co-Pilot360 Technology Packages. The project, Ford says, will lead to Level 1 and Level 2 driver-assistance system in Ford vehicles globally.
Ford says the partnership will develop improved camera-based collision warning, detection of vehicles and pedestrians and lane-keeping features for its vehicles, including F-150 and Mustang Mach-E cars.
The carmaker said Mobileye will provide its EyeQ sensing technology along with a vision-processing software to support Ford’s Co-Pilot360 system as well as a hands-free driving feature that will be introduced next year.
Ford will include Mobileye’s logo in driver-assist communication displays and is also considering using its Roadbook map system, which uses anonymized, crowd-sourced data from vehicle cameras.
